I like this style. The app shouldn't have a totally generic name in the
software center, so we prepend GNOME to the generic display name there.

Shouldn't it have the same "branded" name in the About dialog as in
Software, so users can relate the two? Something like this:

    App launch menu: Maps
    About: GNOME Maps
    Software: GNOME Maps

    App launch menu: Files
    About: Nautilus or Nautilus (Files)
    Software: Nautilus or Nautilus (Files)

Or perhaps Maps and Nautilus should be shown as Maps and Files in GNOME
environments only, and as GNOME Maps and Nautilus otherwise (e.g. if
they appear in KDE or XFCE menus)?
