FWIW, the policy says:

"If a package contains a GUI application, then it needs to also include
a properly installed .desktop file. For the purposes of these
guidelines, a GUI application is defined as any application which draws
an X window and runs from within that window."

So, the rasmol app doesn't meet that criteria, so a .desktop file is not
required (although, it is worth noting that it is also permitted if the
maintainer wishes to do so).
