StartupNotify in .desktop spec?



Hello. I just noticed that the keys StartupNotify and StartupWMClass are not in the (apparently) most recent version of the .desktop spec posted at http://www.cojobo.net/~h_wendel/stuff/desktop-entry-spec.html.

I remember that there was discussion at one point that felt .desktop files were the right place to put this information, so I'm unsure why they are not in there yet.

In case it is due to a mere lack of a patch, I have included a patch below to put these into the spec (I note that GTK+ 2 applications support startup notification, but does a version of KDE yet support the xdg startup notification? I couldn't tell by a quick google):
