Adding new field into .desktop specification would have a ripple effect. You
have already felt that with KDesktopFile::readName(), and it would also be
necessary to update localization systems, several of which are in use. This
means that a new field should be added to .desktop specification only when
it is obvious that it serves a general and permanent purpose. This purpose
is not such.
As for double .desktop files, I think that the ugliness of the solution
matches well the stupidity of the problem.
