Well then it is discrimination because there are also GNOME and KDE
categories. I really don't see where all the fuzz is about, because
nothing breaks if you add unknown names in categories.
I'll drop the category and let's all obey the broken world of mr Untz
(and his useless desktop-file-validate tool). But if he has balls he
agrees the desktop-categories are useless and they remove GNOME and KDE
from the spec.
