KDE and XDG menu specs

Hi list,

I'm now studying XDG menu specs and want to create our own menu structure.
I followed XDG menu specs and created one.

Now I met some problems.  I found that in my submenu layout, the menu 
attributes like "show_empty", "inline" didn't work.  It looks like all the 
attributed were ignored.

I tried this on Kubuntu (with KDE 4.6.2) and Mageia 1 beta 2 (with KDE 4.6.2).

I googled some but wasn't sure if this part is handled by KDE or system.  I 
mean, who is in charge of parsing the menu files and showing menu trees?


This link shows that it seems to be KDE/Gnome's responsibility to parse and 
show menus.  If so, my question is that, does KDE fully follow the XDG menu 
specs?  How could I dig in to find out why the menu attributes are ignored?

Any hint and suggestion is appreciated.
