This is not what i meant, i don't think it's a good idea to use gnome/kde keywords in the specification, the kde and gnome window managers should just adopt to what is specified, this is the only way to get a unified desktop, if we're going to add gnome/kde specific  arguments, then what's the use of standardizing ?
That's what i meant with it.
