Ok, didn't know that - was just playing around with desktop entry files :)

It may be noted that thunar's behavior is worse than that of other file 
managers. Rox and Konqueror at least leave the filename intact and 
Nautilus even has a special icon for desktop files.

Anyway I'll read on xdg what the consensus is.
