I don't think we should start to work on this for applications.menu (we
should simply agree on a shared menu structure). However, GNOME uses
another .menu file that is not in the spec and other desktops could
also use some file with the same name, but with another intent.

So adding something in the spec about the names of .menu files that are
desktop-specific sounds useful to me.
