yes, but the actual implementation is non-trivial (at least the full one
including $() syntax). apart from that, given that it is non-standard,
kde definitely MUST NOT (yay, RFC terminology) write it to potentially
shareable .desktop files. that was alread fixed (maybe even multiple
times), but somehow it got re-enabled directly or indirectly, or this
particular case was not covered in the first place.
