Except I think you need at least to use an icon, and if possible to
translate descriptions, that you might get locale issues (charset for
the name/description, even for international apps like Prot\'eg\'e I
happen to package), etc.
Else, seems a good idea :o)

I'd like something that would replace/shorten that (taken from javacc):

  for _exe in javacc jjdoc jjtree
    cat << EOF > $_exe
exec /usr/share/java/javacc/bin/$_exe \$@
  install -Dm755 $_exe "$pkgdir/usr/bin/$_exe"
