It has been raised in the past, yes. The solution I'd proposed was a
thing called desktop-directory-utils. With Alex's "virtual icons"
solution though that's no longer required.

KDE has a configurable location for the desktop, including $HOME,
so full interoperability there would really mean some spec for where
to store that setting.

I don't think we can go very far down the "shared config options"
route without having a shared config system implementation.  Or you
end up with zillions of little dotfiles each with their own spec.
