The same would be needed for other .desktop files from all kind of
packages. Since MATE is a fork of GNOME, with probably much
compatibility, wouldn't it make sense to patch MATE instead so that it
shows GNOME desktop files? Is there a policy on this?

It is anyway to late to get this xscreensaver change into Jessie by
simple upload (it must have been uploaded to unstable before October
26th) so we will have to see what the release managers think.
