Given that I mentioned this several times at KDE conferences, blogged about it, sent mails to KDE devel lists I assume the application maintainers don't care whether their applications work on Wayland. Which is totally fine. Then let them stay broken.

  Thanks. I guess it's the section "Setting window icon", but:
  - there are no references to D-Bus, which you referred to in the previous comment (not also in the rest of the page in this context);
  - the "domain name" link refers to organizationDomain. The problem here is that the icon was not visible in applications were  organizationDomain was properly set, because the homepage was used when setting the desktop file name. So setDesktopFileName must be used explicitly, and maybe it was not available when you wrote the blog post, could you please add a note there to reference that method?
