I generally agree, but not every upstream does include desktop files
and it's not possible for packages which aren't maintained by upstream

We already had this discussion on the mailing lists. So this should be
handled quite flexible in AUR as well as in the repos.

So if upstream doesn't provide such files or until upstream will
provide such files, such files should be included into the downstream

And there are upstream devs who disagree and find that those files
should be provided by downstream.

You won't get the ideal in this point.
