There's no need to break spec. The spec allows you to add custom keys
to the .desktop file by prepending "X-" to the name, so you could add e.g.:
(or whatever) to the .desktop file, and then change your menu
implementation to honor this value.

Sorry, but I'm still not convinced this should go into the desktop entry
spec. This seems very special-case-use and IMO broken behavior, and we
shouldn't be encouraging future implementors and packagers to use this
sort of thing.
