I saw that in Ubuntu #129041; however a better fix would be to distribute
the desktop files in a separate package, e.g., "xterm-desktop", which
depends on xterm. There's no argument to the fact that people who would
install that would get what they're asking for, without being filtered
through the biases of the gnome developers.

Not installing the desktop files will raise other issues, c.f. <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=609363#c6>. So, please keep them in the xterm package but hide them from the menus.

well perhaps there are 3 categories of users:

a) people who intentionally use xterm (and don't mind the menus)
b) people who more/less accidentally run xterm
c) other (probably not gnome developers)

Are you addressing (b)?
