Question How to create a submenu to a registered category with a xdg-desktop-menu?


I know I can use xdg-desktop-menu to add an application to a "registered category" (e.g. Office) in the desktop menu, and I can also add a new submenu at the root of the desktop menu. What I would like to do, however, is create a submenu in a submenu that is already present. Does xdg-desktop-menu allow that?

Here's an example of what I would like to have :

Code:
(MENU)
  |
  +-- Games
  +-- Graphics
  +-- [...]
  |
  +-- Office
  |     |
  |     +-- MyVendorName
  |     |       |
  |     |       +-- MyAppName1
  |     |       +-- MyAppName2
  |     |       +-- MyAppName3
  |     |
  |     +-- OpenOffice.org
  |     +-- Evolution
  |     +-- Kontact
  |     +-- [...]
  |
  +-- Settings
  +-- System
Using xdg-desktop-menu install MyVenderName.directory MyAppName.desktop creates a submenu at the root of the menu (sibbling of Games, Graphics, Office, etc.), but I don't want to pollute the root with my apps which clearly belong under the Office category.


Thanks.
