Why mess with names like this at all when functional equivalents exist *now* in .desktop files using Name and GenericName, e.g. for mozilla:
Name=Mozilla
GenericName=Web Browser


The display of these are (user) configurable (at least in KDE) whereas hardcoding changes as you suggest certainly are not.


Because they're not using them properly, and so invent rules to work
around bugs

Who are "they"? What bugs?


Name should be name and GenericName should be GenericName.

And they should be used as

  +----------------------+
  | Name  GenericName[1] |
  | Comment              |

[1] order here should respect somehow what makes sense for other
languages. maybe a field to specify invert-order is needed, like
invert-order="list of locales"

I don't follow what you're saying here at all, so could you please elaborate for my slow moving brain this morning (probably for lack of coffee).
