It does, my concern is that "joe the average user" when looking for someway
to control the volume, will expect something name just "Volume Control", and
may not try to start "PulseAudio Volume Control", or atleast not after trying
many other options, because he has no idea what PulseAudio is, and unfamiliar
makes unloved / he might find it "scary".

But users who disabled PA will be mightily confused if they try running something advertising itself as "Volume Control" and not working at all due to PA not running.

This is just one more instance of the same problem: please don't use generic names only! The current "PulseAudio Volume Control" entry is correct.

Hum..

Should system-config-printer than be renamed to cups-config-printer and printing to cups printing ( Only configures cups ).. and system-config-firewall to netfilter-config-firewall and firewall to netfilter-firewall ( Only configures netfilter/iptables )
etc...

Either go with generic or not.

Regarding the Volume Control

There can be only one volume control!!!!

Let's not have 3 4 or 5 volume controls because that will only lead to disaster.. Not only will the users be confused seeing 3 volume controls guessing which one to pick or better yet decide to mess with them all and ends up with a messed up audio system ( Things enabled in VC1 disabled in VC2, programs take their settings from VC3 hence don't work etc.. ).

For the user call it Volume Control and when the mouse is over it in the little msg box PulseAudio Volume Control or Gnome Volume Control
etc.
But there should be only one...

Rest should be called app-sound-settings to not confuse user....
