Indeed, good catch.  I've updated the wiki and added a note about
"encrypted root" partitions to point#14.  Feedback welcome!

Good points.  My $0.02.  I'd suggest we narrow the focus to all
applications accessible from the menu for the LiveCD or default install.
Would I like to see this expand, definitely.  I don't want to bite off
more than we can chew.

What I think would be pretty nice here is a link to some "graphical
application standards" documentation.  Something that testers could
reference when validating this requirement and filing defects.

mclasen: Do you know if such a document or guideline exists on
freedesktop.org or in the desktop space?  I'm not seeing anything jump
out at http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications.

Agreed.  If there is a document to reference here ... I'd love to make
that link more obvious.  The bug you filed above helped to highlight an
intended change where we need to go back and adjust the requirements.  

I've adjusted this bullet to refer to all menu items under the
''Applications'' menu.  What about ''Places''?
