No, sorry. "KDE Applications" has the brand in its name, but it is 
still generic.

I may request the same regarding "Apps Bundle" being distinguishable 
enough compared to "KDE Applications". I fail to see your point as 
convincing enough. I strongly believe that a totally generic ("KDE 
fritzsomething") would be more useful, should we change this name,

Can you please spend one month on #kde and the KDE-related support 
channel of the distributions and see how and what people ask for when 
they look for "applications" and "KDE"?
