Without further qualifications then, you appear to be suggesting that
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.\


you didn't answer my question - you only repeated your previous

Only applications for which there is no appropriate replacement already provided as part of GNOME should show up in the GNOME menu.

xterm is replaced by GNOME's own gnome-terminal in every regard. When it comes to emacs, generally gedit is the editor bundled with GNOME, but emacs is so "special" in its UI that this may justify it showing up in GNOME's menu. Furthermore, emacs has to get explicitely installed and is thus present on the system by will of the administrator; xterm is installed by default.
