As I understand it, those would go away entirely. All menu entries would
be in /usr/share/applications, or $HOME/.local/share/applications as per
desktop menu specification. The menu's themselves would go into
/etc/xdg/menus, or $HOME/.config/menus/ (If I have read the basedir and
menu specs correctly).
