I don't like a meaningless placeholder. Either we anticipate a change in
the future and we should define that use (having a single identifier for
all packages makes no sense). Or we drop it.
X-Red-Hat-Base and X-Red-Hat-Extra has a meaning, although I'm not sure
why it includes 'Red-Hat'. Maybe we need a policy of what is expected in
the first level menu, and what in the second. (Or another scheme).
PS I don't have any 'More...' submenus on my FC3 even though some of the
desktop-files do use X-Red-Hat-Extra.
