I have now moved handlers out of desktop and into the modules where they belong.
That applies to dired, info, rmail and mh-e.

The idea is as follows: The desktop module handles buffers visiting a file. For buffers not visiting a file, desktop needs help from the major mode module. The major mode module must define a function to restore desktop buffers, and the function must be listed in `desktop-buffer-mode-handlers'. If the major mode needs to save auxiliary information in the desktop file, it must also define a function returning that information and assign the function to the buffer local variable `desktop-buffer-misc-data-function' in the mode function.
