Yes, it's lack in free desktops integration! But these comment sound like a

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16581#c9.
It's important even for non Gnome/KDE applications like Arora.

I don't think "free desktop" should be about competition (yes, we need some 
competition to move development forward) but about collaboration! 
Freedesktop.org is a great place for it.
