This should not be about lesser evils. Ugly approach! :)

Who upstream is making this problematic? Is this a Debian-only 
issue? Is this only a packaging issue? Please explain more. What 
exactly is needed to provide remedy?

Trinity is recognized as an XDG desktop. Upstream, whoever they 
might be, need to get on board. I doubt "upstream" has failed to 
support other XDG recognized desktops. TDE != KDE. :)

I created a tdelibs patch and am rebuilding now. I'll start testing
