I don't think a program being removed would cause problems for either of
us. In each case you would have a stale .desktop in the users menu, but it
would be easy to ignore.

In your case the equivalent system menu .desktop did not exist then it

in my case if the default=...desktop was not there the use enty would be

Probably in both cases the user should be askd if he wants to delete the
