Personally, I think listing the name of the application is "too Windowish".
I really like the menu item to be generic, i.e. "IRC client", "Web browser",
etc.  That should be for the default applications which I should be able
to change with the Preferred applications applet.

Subsequent installed apps should just be listed as the application name. So
if I have Epiphany, Firefox and Konqueror with Firefox as my default, I should
see Epiphany and Konqueror in the list but not Firefox.

Just my 2 cents.
