Set model type of NodeRef based on Tika-determined MIME Type

I've created a custom "type" in my content model that models a file with a custom file format/extension.

I've configured Tika and Alfresco to recognize this file as a specific MIME type. Now, I would like to apply (setType) my custom model type to any file of this mime type added anywhere in the repository.

To that end, I've created a behavior that binds to onCreateNode for any cm:content. Unfortunately the mimetype is unavailable at this point in the lifecycle (throws NPE retrieving ContentData) and in any event, it appears that Tika runs *after* this point.

I've been looking at NodeMonitor and TransactionListener, but I'm not certain this is the right path either.

What would be an appropriate method for accomplishing what I want?

Thanks!
