It's more up to FD .desktop files (ans thus to packagers),

I can be completely wrong here as we're sitting on hacked Debian
menu and slooowly moving onto Freedesktop standard (discovering
some of deficiencies that folks might have let there after
unignoring some other stuff, and not e.g. deb menu experience).

Oh well.  Actually part of your problem with those is about
choice, and that's about how the distro is built and extended
(or not).

Single app can be a "music player"; when there are *two* music
players on the system, they have to get their own names.
