StartupNotify in .desktop spec?

Hello. I just noticed that the keys StartupNotify and StartupWMClass
are not in the (apparently) most recent version of the .desktop spec
posted at http://www.cojobo.net/~h_wendel/stuff/desktop-entry-spec.html.
I remember that there was discussion at one point that felt .desktop
files were the right place to put this information, so I'm unsure why
they are not in there yet.
In case it is due to a mere lack of a patch, I have included a patch
below to put these into the spec (I note that GTK+ 2 applications
support startup notification, but does a version of KDE yet support the
xdg startup notification? I couldn't tell by a quick google):
