That first line no longer does anything anything in pulseaudio-7.0 so 
will be removed in a future update. Thanks for noticing it.

I'm relaxed about the X-MATE line being added to the .desktop file 
though. Look how many X-GNOME references exist in the system .desktop 
files, yet GNOME isn't part of normal Slackware distribution. They are 
left there as a convenience for those who choose to install a Gnome 
desktop. Similarly the X-MATE entry aims to be helpful to those who 
choose to install MATE. It has zero effect on those who don't use MATE.
