In 5.0, it can be done without a patch. It does, however, require an impl dependency on xml-core. I'd really like this to be simpler, and a supported API.

See below for issues with pre-release 6.0

Anyway, here's how I do it for an xml flavor called SCXML:

1. Register the loader for text/xml mimetype

2. The loader:

import java.io.IOException;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.XMLDataLoader;
import org.openide.filesystems.FileObject;
import org.openide.loaders.DataObjectExistsException;
import org.openide.loaders.MultiDataObject;
import org.openide.loaders.UniFileLoader;
import org.openide.util.NbBundle;
 
public class ScxmlDataLoader extends UniFileLoader
{
 
    public static final String REQUIRED_MIME = "application/scxml+xml";
 
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 
    public ScxmlDataLoader()
    {
        super("com.nuance.tools.xhmi.ScxmlDataObject");
    }
 
    protected String defaultDisplayName()
    {
        return NbBundle.getMessage(ScxmlDataLoader.class, "LBL_Scxml_loader_name");
    }
 
    protected void initialize()
    {
        super.initialize();
        getExtensions().addMimeType(REQUIRED_MIME);
    }
 
    protected MultiDataObject createMultiObject(FileObject primaryFile) throws DataObjectExistsException, IOException
    {
        return new ScxmlDataObject(primaryFile, this);
    }
 
    protected MultiDataObject.Entry createPrimaryEntry (MultiDataObject obj, FileObject primaryFile) {
        return new XMLDataLoader.XMLFileEntry (obj, primaryFile); //adds smart templating
    }
 
    protected String actionsContext()
    {
        return "Loaders/" + REQUIRED_MIME + "/Actions";
    }
}

3. The data object:

import java.io.IOException;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.XMLDataObjectLook;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.cookies.DataObjectCookieManager;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.sync.DataObjectSyncSupport;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.sync.Synchronizator;
import org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.text.TextEditorSupport;
import org.netbeans.spi.xml.cookies.CheckXMLSupport;
import org.netbeans.spi.xml.cookies.DataObjectAdapters;
import org.netbeans.spi.xml.cookies.ValidateXMLSupport;
import org.openide.filesystems.FileObject;
import org.openide.loaders.DataObjectExistsException;
import org.openide.loaders.MultiDataObject;
import org.openide.nodes.CookieSet;
import org.openide.nodes.Node;
import org.openide.text.DataEditorSupport;
import org.xml.sax.InputSource;
 
public class ScxmlDataObject extends MultiDataObject implements 
XMLDataObjectLook
{
    private transient final DataObjectCookieManager cookieManager;
    private transient Synchronizator synchronizator;
 
    public ScxmlDataObject(FileObject pf, ScxmlDataLoader loader) throws DataObjectExistsException, IOException {
        super(pf, loader);
        CookieSet cookies = getCookieSet();
        cookieManager = new DataObjectCookieManager (this, cookies);
 
        cookies.add((Node.Cookie) DataEditorSupport.create(this, getPrimaryEntry(), cookies));
 
        InputSource is = DataObjectAdapters.inputSource(this);
        cookies.add(new CheckXMLSupport(is));
        cookies.add(new ValidateXMLSupport(is));
 
        // editor support defines MIME type understood by EditorKits registry        
        TextEditorSupport.TextEditorSupportFactory editorFactory =
            new TextEditorSupport.TextEditorSupportFactory (this, org.netbeans.modules.xml.core.XMLDataObject.MIME_TYPE);
        editorFactory.registerCookies (cookies);
 
    }
 
    protected Node createNodeDelegate() {
        return new ScxmlDataNode(this);
    }
 
    ////////// XMLDataObjectLook interface /////////////////
    public DataObjectCookieManager getCookieManager() {
        return cookieManager;
    }
 
    public synchronized Synchronizator getSyncInterface() {
        if (synchronizator == null) {
            synchronizator = new DataObjectSyncSupport (ScxmlDataObject.this);
        }
        return synchronizator;
    }
}

4. The layer file:
