I would say that no menu at all is better than a broken menu..
Debian policy say 'should' for the debian menu so it is not mandatory..
You can decide which way you'll prefer, but be sure to ship a .desktop file 
I definitly think a lintian-override is too much. These have to be reserved 
for special and mandatory occasions which is not the case here..
BTW the menu is not displayed here with KDE, I'm not sure it is related to png 
icon, but it may be...

Yes, this is up to the maintainer I guess..

Well, not to be pessimistic, but this can take months... So you'd better find 
sponsors with which you work closely until then..
