I patched KDE(should be at least in 3.3, IIRC) to not show KDE specific 
programs in GNOME. You could patch GNOME programs similarly and get it into 
their codebase.

If that for various reasons isn't a possible solution, I think you can modify 
their respective menu files. In KDE, it's kdelibs/kded/applications.menu. I 
don't know in what context you need it, so it can of course be unsuitable(and 
I can also be dead wrong).
