This is how upstream does it and I'm very much inclined not to change
that as this would mean that we would have to care for the translation
of that string.
Upstream might change it for 2.6 but defaults to leave it as it is
unless somebody comes forward with compelling reasons to change it

I don't know about you guys, but I like seeing the programs name in
menus and I hate to see ONLY program description like a name... that's
why I'm always renaming the entire menu....
In my opinion there should be some popup description text when mouse
over the program's name.... But that's gnome issue...
So why don't you just put:
"GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP)", "Internet messenger
etc.... Everybody happy, right?
Besides that, there's Google who knows everything for users who don't ;)......
