The change has been decided in a recent desktop team meeting on IRC. The
category is an upstream official one and quite some applications are
using it. We used to do changes to not have it on the default
installation but the system menus have lot of items and the category is
quickly unmasked when installing something using it anyway

We will likely move some other things back there if we continue to use
the category. The comments there are interesting though. Why do you
think it's an issue? Do you find confusing to have the category unmasked
and containing only one item if you install vmware for example?
