Default What should the desktop spin for F9 look like ?

Yes, please! :-)

Ideally that'd be implemented by using both the Name and GenericName fields of
the .desktop file, but even putting "name - generic name" into Name would be a
huge improvement over having just the generic name there (and require no
changes to GNOME, whereas GenericName is currently not supported by GNOME).

IMHO all GUI apps really need to be in the menus. How else are users supposed
to find them?

That'd just generate a huge mess once tools (panel etc.) could cope with
Name + GenericName, wouldn't it? If all else fails, allow "Name=<name> -
<genericname>" only if GenericName is empty.

In principle yes, but if we talk about live media we can resort to:
what's not on the media isn't in the menu either.
