I don't understand why you keep /etc/X11/desktop othogonal to e.g. /usr/share. 
The way I see it you have "user-specific, host-specific and non-specific" 
with:
user-specific -> ~/.desktop
host-specific -> /etc/X11/desktop
non-specific -> /usr/share

I don't understand why you would want to say: "applications.menu must either 
be host-specific or user-specific." What's wrong with having a shared version 
under /usr/share?
