The answer is www.freedesktop.org. I think this issue is addressed somewhere 
there, but I can't point to a more precise url.

None. As I understand it, kde (<=3.1.x) uses /usr/share/applnk, while kde 
(>=3.2) uses /usr/share/applications/kde. The location was changed to be 
compliant with some freedesktop.org standard, but the current kde still also 
looks in /usr/share/applnk for backward compatibility. Anyway, every package 
that places files in /usr/share/applnk is kind of obsolete, and someone 
should probably file a bug, though I'm not sure about the severity (it's not 
official Debian policy, so it shouldn't be "serious").
