Other Xfce packages like the panel also utilize these grayed out menu
titles, so even though I don't like them, I'd say don't remove the one
in the desktop menu just yet. It is consistent with the rest of the DE
afterall. You might still want to suggest this change upstream. Another
option would be to make it a 'real' title widget instead of something
that looks like (well, is) a disabled menu item.
