OnlyShowIn=TDE or NotShowIn=KDE?

Recently Trinity was given a nominal public review in a blog:

The author offered a caveat:

"The Trinity-DE applications are only available through the Trinity-
DE desktop. While all the other applications installed on your 
system show up in the TDE menus, because of the way Trinity-DE 
loads its menus, if you log in with Xfce, the Trinity-DE 
applications will not be seen."

Most Trinity *.desktop files use OnlyShowIn=TDE, which causes the 
author's observations.

Should users of other environments (many window managers support a 
menu system too) be prevented from using Trinity apps? Probably 
not. The original motivation for using OnlyShowIn=TDE is conflicts 
and confusion in the Trinity and KDE menus because many apps share 
the same name. Perhaps NotShowIn=KDE is more apprpriate than 

I believe we should resolve this before releasing R14.
