Can Name=GenericName go away now, please?



I posted similarly to fedora-desktop list, but I thought it may be worth spreading this discussion to a wider audience.

In particular, can we/fedora consider using better menu names now, so users know which apps are really behind some generic (and mysterious?) items in menus(1).

I'm aware of the history that brought us to this point, and using the generic items, but I think it's time to re-evaluate the decision, especially in the context of fedora's various spins.
