This is due to the introduction of Spotlight and the spread of Uniform Type Identifiers (UTIs) through Apple application Info.plist files. UTIs are a more precise mechanism for denoting the content type of files, but in some ways they overlap the functionality of type/creator attributes and extensions. LaunchServices, which determines what icon a file has and what application is used to open it by default, now puts a file's UTI bindings at a higher precedence than its file extension binding or its type/creator binding. Because some applications don't assign UTIs yet, apps that do assign a UTI are now "claiming" files that used to be owned by apps that do not assign UTIs.
More on UTIs is explained at
The LaunchServices team knows about this problem and is looking at ways to address it.
