If you had bothered to read the thread on xdg-list (which would have
taken less than an hour) you would have found that the "Fedora dev [who]
wants to push something into Fedora" is the same person who proposed the
this solution on xdg-list and, for the record, got lots of feedback from
people affiliated with KDE, XFCE, SUSE, Mandriva, Red Hat, LTSP and
others. In the same breath, Alex (aka the "Fedora dev"), is upstream for
the Gnome bits (Nautilus and the VFS) using this proposal.

It's fine to give feedback on what is flowing into Fedora (because
sometimes we want to change defaults), this is partly what we do on this
list and the Project encourages it, but if you do so without having done
your homework about you're just wasting lots of peoples time. Please
don't do that. Thanks.
