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)?
I am not addressing a specific user category and I am not a gnome developer.
It is just a matter of fact that gnome (and kde, xfce and lxde, btw) have
their own well integrated terminal applications and thus xterm should not
show up as an additional alternative in the menus *in these desktop
Without further qualifications then, you appear to be suggesting that only
applications which are part of gnome should be allowed to show up in its
menus (for instance emacs isn't). To pointedly *exclude* xterm, there
should be some better justification than that it's not part of gnome.
