Version number and Copyright notice

Hi XDG list,

I noticed (or did I miss it) that the desktop entry file does not have a place 
for the application version number nor copyright.

Is there a place for this information?

Should there be?

One would expect to see this info if one takes 'Properties' with right click 
from the desktop file. Standard practice in the other two operating systems.

Also, I noticed that Ubuntu does not display the comment field from the desktop 
file as it is supposed to . But of course that is not a spec problem.

cheers Kusti
