not really, neither gnome nor kde packages are the rigt place for this so 
both are buggy here:
/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu is the default place for the 
_cross-desktop_ menu specified by the freedesktop base-directory spec

-> any menu there will be used by (at least) current KDE, current GNOME, and 
XFCE >= 4.2 (not sure what version is in Debian currently)
-> having this shared file owned by _any_one_ of the desktops is bound to 
lead to endless bickering and flamewars (not to mention that it will 
effectively force everyone to install the core of that desktop), 

the right place to put this is probably the menu-xdg package, as that's the 
package that's supposed to deal with the freedesktop menu standard in 
Debian AIUI
