You are correct.  The only way to remedy that would be by adopting an common UTI for .tex files, e.g. org.tug.tex, then have each front end declare that they edit that UTI; they could then use the same importer, as far as I understand.  There was some discussion of an official UTI a few months ago, but I don't recall anything being formalized (and I'm not going to use the org.tug domain without permission).
