This assumes, of course, that the default Gnome and KDE menus embody simple
and elegant UI design principles.

If such is the case, then great.  There is "zero work".

If such is NOT the case, then Debian Desktop might be able to lend a helping
hand in designing an *alternate* menu, to be available as an option, that
embodies the ideals Debian Desktop is trying to achieve.

I do agree that the default KDE and Gnome .desktop files should be available
for those who choose to use them.
