That’s for the name used in GNOME Software though, which is in the
AppStream data and as such is also the name that will be picked up by
other software catalog apps. Do you really want the KDE app store to
show “Music” as such, which could be misleading to their users?

The GNOME core apps are designed and developed in order to be a core part of GNOME. They are meant to be integrated, consistent, generic. How they appear outside of GNOME is a secondary concern, as far as I'm concerned.

That said, I'd imagine that the same principles I described in my previous mail would apply in other contexts: the name in the "store" should match the name you see when you run the app.
