1) Why is there suddenly an absolute need to edit desktop files from 
Nautilus. We managed all of gnome 1.4 without this. Your proposal 
basically makes it impossible to change permissions, emblems or look at 
properties of desktop files, in favor of an over-complicated desktopfile 

2) I don't think this is a huge problem.
