I thought it was used in how the Gnome menus are actually setup in Fedora, but 
upon closer look (and discussing with our desktop folks) X-Fedora is 100% 
useless.

--vendor fedora is only there because a --vendor is required by 
desktop-file-utils, but I hear word that we're going to fix that, as the 
vendor tag isn't used by anything either.

So in this case, I think we need to remove the suggestion of at least X-Fedora 
from the Guidelines.  Any future package should not use it, and existing 
packages can remove it at will.  I'll send this through the packaging 
committee for an email vote.
