I think the XDG standard is actually *based* on the Desktop Entry spec
from KDE1/KDE2, but this is only based on vague memories of
writing .desktop/.icon files back in 1999-2003.

So, it doesn't surprise me that KDE implements more than the spec. But I
haven't used KDE3 much, so I don't know if it's still the way it was
last time I touched KDE, which was in the Debian 2.2/3.0 days...

Or maybe the Desktop Entry spec is based on the minimal ground seen
between both KDE and GNOME, in which case, it's sad that it hasn't
improved since that point...
