I think that's an absolutely terrible criterion to group things by. GTK+/GNOME 
apps work fine under KDE, Qt/KDE apps work fine under GNOME. While for basic 
tasks, there's usually both a KDE and a GNOME app (still I'd like the choice! 
OnlyShowIn sucks!), for more advanced tasks there's often only one application, 
and I think that's a good thing. It doesn't make sense to waste time rewriting 
all applications in Qt/KDE for no reason other than "GNOME sucks" 
(independently of whether that's true or not) or the opposite. So I think the 
current "clutter" (as you call it), i.e. offering all applications in the same 
menu, is the best solution.
