I don't think they are needed any more with the current system. However,
they do get used with older versions of gnome. So, this is a backwards
compat issue for the app. If you want your app to work on old Gnome
versions you need a .application file.

For apps that ship with the desktop (and that generally need a pretty
recent gnome anyway) we should probably just drop them.
