There is some of that. Some menus are not meant to follow the opendesktop
standard and only use the desktop files and ignore config files. KDE has
some like that and of course unity and gnome shell do as well. It is only
a bug when the menu uses an /etc/xdg/*/menus/config file that claims to do
merges. Then the merges should be done correctly. There are at least 5
(just that I know of) other projects that rely on proper merging, it is
not just our menus.
