A few Lubuntu Menu things...

The page looks great!
I think it could be nice to have it all on wiki.ubuntu.com so we can
point the other Ubuntu versions to that site, and link a bug to the list.
There may already be open bugs about this specific issue.
I know lmms lost its icon sometime around 10.10, so it could be some
sort of change to the Ubuntu internals that 'broke' some icons.  It
could be related back to a change in Debian, though...

If you need any help doing it (when the time comes) let me know, I'd be
glad to help you make a new page for it (though it is very easy)
By the way, you rock!  This is incredible.  I will poke around in some
of the packages soon and see if my suspicions are correct, and I'll
check this against Debian's list of orphaned/non-maintained packages
It is surprising that Calibre has no icon... that seems to be a very
popular application.

I will try to get an idea of where the major disconnect is here.
As Aere Greenway pointed out some time ago, some applications are
command line only, so I think some small percentage of these *could* be
related to that, but I also think making a desktop file for a non-GUI
app is almost pointless, at least for me.  If I want to use grep, I
wouldn't want to launch it from the applications menu, unless it was
some sort of GUI app.  I'd rather be able to pass arguments to it, and
flip back through the previous commands, use other things in a chain
with it, etc...  Though there may be a small set of programs that might
be useful to run from the menu that are command line only
