Who is it misleading to? From a command line interface, they've been
pretty clear -
from a CVS point of view, I think the main thing to worry about is the
fact that the module is called 'gnome-utils'. That's pretty self
explanatory, coupled with a README and you're in the clear.

Very, very strong chances that they'll be in the desktop release. From a
CVS standpoint, they'll never be part of gnome-utils.

Their code is pretty unmaintainable and buggy. They both could do with
some love to make them more useful/HIG compliant/bug free.
