Not exactly.. We have an optional "Task based menu" which only say
"Browse the Web", "Read my Email" and so on.. The apps is chosen based
on your current desktop environment (kmail when using KDE, evolution
when using GNOME).
My only problem when using generic name is when people will install
various browsers. It is not really a problem for GNOME itself, but for
distributors, but I'm afraid it will be hard to solve..
