I tend to agree.  Having an application label followed by a name helps the
newbie in two ways.  First, the newbie can quickly find a web browser, chat
client, etc.  But also, the newbie, through repetitive association, will
also learn the proper names of various software libre applications, and
thereby become a more knowledgable user.

Another good point.  A bit more flexibility for those who customize the
default Debian Desktop menu.
