That's true, but remember that when they launch they will see the project
name anyway. The thing is to keep the Debian Desktop the simplest possible
_by default_ - with the open possibility to extend it whenever the user
feels more comfortable with the new environment.

Sure, that would have to be done. As somebody in this thread suggested, in
that case the terminal name should appear in the parentheses - it's obvious
that the distinction should be made somehow. Or, perhaps, it would be better
to automatically turn that menu entry into a submenu when more Terminal
Emulators are installed?
