Adding an application to's menu

Following a mail on kde-devel from Ingo Malchow about the application 
menu and json files that generate it, I noticed our application Kdenlive (part 
of KDE multimedia) is not there.

I am not very confident about the syntax of the json file and don't want to 
break by committing a corrupted file, so can anybody who knows that 
check it and give me feedback or commit my proposal?

Below is my attempt for the kdenlive.json file based on amarok.json.

Thanks and regards
