Using workaround in plugins if Open API doesn't helps

Is it good or bad?
For my PropertiesEditor plugin I get RFE to associate files with my editor and show icons for it everywhere in plugin settings. It's possible in IDEA but not in Open API, I'd found workaround for it (programmatically copy jar to IDEA lib directory(with icons) and copy instrumented file types settings xml file with readonly attribute to avoid it's wrong modification by IDEA and manage it by plugin, problem that when this setting enabled standard file types settings doesn't working).
Now I'm don't know add this functionality in plugin such way or don't add it at all cause it hack.
