It would not, to few x-terminal-emulator provide -hold.

I suggest a simpler route (untested):

command="x-terminal-emulator -e /bin/sh -c \"gnumed;echo press any key to continue;read foo\""

Note that it does not really solve the dependency on xterm: it merely
replaces it on a depdendency on any terminal-emulator.
