Well this problem is history anyway I mailed Heinrich Wendel yesterday 
and he added <All> entry to dtd file within 10 minutes. I just forgot to 
tell you about the problem being solved already.

I first did this same mistake but actually the spec says:
"Desktop entries in this directory are scanned and added to the pool of 
entries which can be included in this <Menu> and its submenus."

So the <AppDir> entry just tells that when you <include> something check 
this directory (and all it's subdirectories) to find that something.
