I mean I mostly concur; the spec is insufficiently defined for our
purposes so part of the policy proposal will be polishing the spec as
we use it in debian.  And the misuse of the spec is a consequence of a
perceived need for information that the spec doesn't provide, so we
need to make that information available on a debian-wide way (so
kde .desktop aren't only for kde, for instance, and ditto gnome).



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
