With the directory based approach we mark applications "hidden" when we move 
them and ten copy the .desktop file somewhere else. With this format you 
could almost do the same by adding <Exclude> on the original location and 
<Include> on the new location.

Is it possible to merge two such files though? Otherwise you would need to 
copy the file to the user's home dir first and then make the changes, but 
that means that changes made at the system level to this file will no longer 
propagate to the user.
