"Entertainment"'s too vague, IMHO. I've put a proposal on the wiki,
based on the freedesktop.org menu categories:


Ryan's raised a related bug: make the applications' menu conform to a
similar structure:


This means that once a user's installed an app, they'll know which
menu to look for it in, and we won't have any of this "where do you
want to install" prompting, or "Extras" menu defaulting.
