I have no idea whether it is pure speculation or wrong intuition.  I
accept your argument as insider that the menu function in fvwm is
actually used by some users.  However, the other arguments to prefer
desktop files over menu files remain valid unregarded this fact and
there was also a solution suggested in this thread for fvwm users.

So the point remains: We should start issuing lintian warnings about
missing desktop files where it makes sense to be able to start a
smooth transition.  These files will be needed in any case if we
might want to get rid of Debian menu completely, provide conversions
or just leave menu files untouched.

Kind regards
