Except that the freedesktop.org specification comes with its own set of
categories, registration system, and classification system, which does not
match the Debian system. I suppose we could use the format without using
its categorization system, but that seems a bit strange and Debian's
current menu structure doesn't have the concept of primary and additional
categories the way that the freedesktop.org specification does.
