I don't think that's enough time to get the representative opinion.

Anyway, on topic, I know I have at least a couple of packages where I
provide the desktop file, but don't know if upstream presently
includes one in their sources. I will have to attend to these.

So, I say +1 to include desktop files as long as upstream does not
provide them. You can file a bug report with them, but the desktop
file stays until they attend to it. Also, it doesn't matter how it was
created, as long as the package includes it.

If a packager wants to go out of her way to provide a desktop file for
software that traditionally do not ship with one, I say we allow her
to do it.
