Actually, those suggestions don't seem very well thought... or somewhat
Particularly in the case of Abiword Word Processor (repetitive, huh?)

In GNOME2, I see the panel launchers showing in the tooltips:

   [ Name ]
   [ Generic Name ]

This is rather different than: [ Name ] [ Generic Name ]
since the first example displays a proper separation  between the name
of the application and the name of the functionality.

So we should have:

   Word Processor

   IRC Client

etc... instead of:
    AbiWord Word Processing

or  X-Chat IRC Client

which are somewhat awkward looking.

Maybe this particular distinction should be brought up to the HIG authors.
