Guess what you are right!
it's ok to keep all the files in ~/.hwm
but what about the user that wants to access his desktop from the command line ?
Can you create a symlink from ~/.hwm-desktop to ~/.hwm/desktop ?
Or what does xfce do for example ?

What about the "/usr/share/applications" ?
I installed the menu launcher for katoob there and it appears in gnome2 menu. I think it's a part of it.
and it contains most of the applications in MY menu "mandrake 8.2"
You can install in both or in one and make a symlink.

That'd be better i think
