fd.o targets free desktops, java targets some more. The mentioned 
code contains some very windows specific stuff -- I think fd.o should host 
fd.o projects/specs, not this fancy generic hippo.

But a stronger reason is the project "JDesktop Integration 
Components" ( which heavily uses fd.o specs via 
gnome libs (at least for Linux and Solaris) to resolve mimetypes and 
possible actions and does other things like systray integration. It tries 
to get into the JDK, so there will be no need for just another project. 
May be it is worth a link in the wiki?
