I have voiced my objection to the general idea of 'desktop switch'
behaviour changes, but that's more of a complaint against
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP than against OnlyShowIn=Unity
I will point out though that the OnlyShowIn values are interpreted by
the session manager, ie gnome-session, not by the compositor. So, are
you going to force gnome-session to call itself Unity ? Or do you ship
your own session manager too ?
