I don't know about you guys, but I like seeing the programs name in
menus and I hate to see ONLY program description like a name... that's
why I'm always renaming the entire menu....
In my opinion there should be some popup description text when mouse
over the program's name.... But that's gnome issue...

So why don't you just put:
"GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP)", "Internet messenger (Pidgin)"
etc.... Everybody happy, right?
Besides that, there's Google who knows everything for users who don't ;)......
