If you check, none of those are actually GNUstep applications.
Current usage for GNUstep applications in Debian seems to be to use a
lowercased version of the name and to remove the ".app" if any. For
GWorkspace.app -> gworkspace
Preferences.app -> preferences
Affiche.app -> affiche
GNUmail.app -> gnumail
GSDict.app -> gsdict
I'm not crazy about calling the package "terminal", which is sort of
generic, but then again "preferences" is pretty generic, too.
There are no current packages or virtual packages named "terminal," so
there's not a namespace clash. The description of the package says
clearly that it's for GNUstep.
