yes; with the addition that applications that don't want to do OnlyShowIn=KDE 
should install their autostart .desktop files with Hidden=true by default 
(should, not must, since there will invariably be excpetions). on first run 
they can change this to Hidden=false or let the user do this via 
configuration settings.

given your reasoning on this provided in previous emails, i'd concur ...
