Big projects like Debian? Yeah, maybe.

On a more serious side, this is not as bad as it sounds. It (XDG stuff)
is just a matter of adding a few more sections to menufile format.

There already is "menu-xdg" package that generates .desktop files. The
difference is that currently these are somewhat incomplete (lack l10n
for example), and therefore do not integrate well into XDG-friendly
desktop environments.

Yes it would. But if done properly, XDG menu integration may come at
nearly zero cost. The largest part that is missing _is_ l10n.

It is really just a matter of "do we want it?" and "what exactly do we
want?". For example, will GNOME/KDE guys be willing to drop current menu
and comply with Policy?

I am not saying that this is easy, but I am at least willing to try.
