This could be fixed by changing the applications.menu shipped by the
various people; I'm not entirely sure adding a new main category will
help since it won't automatically lead to it being used in
applications.menu, but we could try.

Alternatively, or in addition to that, we could suggest a default
applications.menu in the spec.

Maybe we can start with a proposal and discuss it? Even if it was
discussed in the past, time has passed and people might have a different
opinion now.
