I don't think Shauns proposal addresses the issue, really.

Why?  Do you have an example that would show where Shaun's proposal
falls short?

You have two .desktop files, matching the same application, so it is
possible gnome-shell, unity or kde could pick the wrong one when
matching desktop files to windows (unless you tweak Exec to pass
--class, but that fails again with single-instance applications)

But one of them is hidden via [Not]OnlyShowIn. There should be code in all desktop's .destkop file matchers to prefer the files tailored to the respective environment, and if not, it is easy enough to add.

I think everyone here agrees that this more a less a temporary measure and that other long-term solutions such as better cross-desktop settings integration is in order. However, I think that for the time being the .desktop file solution is sensible.
