Could you please do it? I don't think I'm subscribed.

Right, of course.

Sorry, I can't judge without confirming it with the people behind the spec. Maybe we could ask on the xdg list?

That's because with intltool maintainers manually mark translatable keys with "_", no?

I have never seen a locale-dependent icon. The previous tool used to translate .desktop files (intltool) didn't extract the Icon key. As it stands now, it's just a potential point of failure for translators.

According to the specification, the Icon key is really translatable:
http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s05.html

Maybe it is to allow applications to have locale-dependent icons?

xgettext extracts "Icon=" lines from .desktop files, which it shouldn't do.
