Working on building 4.10pre1 for Fedora and have run into this on
several packages. The have desktop files with "XFCE;" as a category. 

According to desktop-file-validate that is not a valid category. ;) 

desktop-file-validate /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/xfce4-settings-4.9.4-1.fc18.x86_64/usr/share/applications/xfce-display-settings.desktop
error: value
for key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" contains an unregistered
value "XFCE"; values extending the format should start with "X-"

Should that be 'X-XFCE'? 
Or just be removed? 

Or is there a newer spec?
