The menu name is wrong with the latest update.

No, its correct - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=125847

Fedora Core 3 will have it called "IM" rather than "GAIM Internet
Messenger" (or whatever it was called before ;))

Part of the simplification like "IRC Client" or "Web browser"

The freedesktop.org .desktop file standard already has the ability to distiguish
Name=gaim
GenericName=IM
or
GenericName=Internet Messenger


This sort of "simplification" of moving the GenericName part to Name is wrong/silly/stupid IMO:
1. It violates at least the spirit (if not the letter) of the .desktop standard.
2. It obfuscates the name/brand of the program/software you're using.
