Ha ha!   Thanks for some comedy in this email!
(Note: look at how long the currently open TODOs have been around)

My opinion:

1) Upstream provided files are gold standard.
2) I do not care beyond that.

As far as I am concerned, if upstream does not provide one, it is up to
the packager whether to use gendesk or a handcrafted .desktop file.
Either way, a rebuild will be needed in the (unlikely?) event that
something changes in the specification.

There is no need to do anything here apart from packages that do not
provide a .desktop file that should need one added.
