In theory, yes,

  But my concern (Well I don't know the technical reason), anyway, I can't tell
you the number of times on both Arch Linux and openSuSE I have edited my menus
in Gnome only to go back into kde3 and find new entries in my kde3 menu that I
just made in Gnome. That's frustrating.

  I know all desktops share the standard menu definition and the gnome entries
are 'usually' "hidden" in kde and vice-versa. I don't want that to happen in
Trinity. That's why I asked about leaving them in /opt/trinity. But, I don't
think that has any bearing on the issue since $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS has both /etc/xgd
and /opt/trinity/etc/xdg in the path :)

  Who will update kdelibs in the svn tree to set the location to /etc/xdg?

  And back to my original question -

"Do we want to update the specification to add
Graphics/Utilities to put kruler, kcolorchooser, etc.. in the Graphics/Utilities
submenu instead of letting them clutter up Graphics?"

  Might as well "kill 2 birds with one stone" while were are working in the area :)
