Exactly. I think all the tutorials overuse and stress the importance of 
having the service to the point people think it is required and it is 
causing repeated confusion when people try to add simple icon to 
taskbar. One example today

Non-GTK programs doesn't need it and even some gtk-based maemo-ized apps 
may make sense without registering as a service.
