This was not sarcastic at all, I consider the spec to be fine on this issue

If you don't like parens or dashes, use the more modern two-line solution,
with the name on the first line and the genericname on the second line.
This was the first solution suggested in Frederic's email, and also what
kde4 does by default (I forgot to mention that all the other options I
mentionned are only used in the "old-style" K menu).
