If I understand correctly now, you're under a contract to develop an
application that shows in the menus only when the locale is set to a given
If you're looking into modifications for the XDG standard, then you must also
be under contract to provide the entire desktop to the user. Otherwise, the
point is moot: no desktop *today* supports the OnlyShowInLang feature. So,
even if we agree on this change, it'll take around 6 months for the first
versions supporting the feature to start rolling out -- and about 2 years for
it to be mainstream.
So, assuming you have control of the desktop, I suggest you simply hijack the
language selection applet in the desktop and delete/add the menu entry. This
satisfies your contract.
If you cannot implement this (I wouldn't -- it's too hacky), then you must
provide a workaround for the desktops where the feature is not present.
