You missed examples I have given:

- If directory is DVD copy, I need to open it with video player or
  enter inside if it is not;

- If directory is Maildir, I wish to open it in terminal, with Mutt,
  or in Emacs terminal or by using Emacs Maildir package;

- If directory is related to many other objects, I wish to open
  database showing me all other objects;

Don't you play DVD directories with vlc?
