that's for GNOME 1.x (and KDE 2.x I suppose). The new one (GNOME 2,
KDE3?) includes some extra bits:

[Desktop Entry]
_Name=Glade Interface Designer
_Comment=GTK+ 2.0 GUI builder

essentially, it's the categories section, which allows to just have all
files in a single directory instead of having to create the menu
structure on disk.

The conversation in xdg-list@ I mention in my last mail was also about
extending this file, to support more properties.
