Defer? Like FDO will decide for us? It doesn't work like that. We are
part of FDO, and we can't even decide what this part of FDO wants. Ergo,
there is no way FDO could decide.
But sure, if anyone wants to bring this up on xdg-list and try to come
to a consensus (that the implementers of Gnome, KDE and the other
desktops will actually accept), more power to them.
