Start menu shortcuts

Is there a policy about which packages are allowed to create start menu
shortcuts? Recent discussion about run.exe on the main cygwin list
makes me think it would be useful for the emacs-X11 package to create a
shortcut for starting emacs under X. I would do this by putting the
following in the postinstall script:
/usr/bin/mkdir -p "$(/usr/bin/cygpath -AP)/Cygwin-X"
/usr/bin/mkshortcut -AP \
-n Cygwin-X/emacs \
-w /usr/bin \
-i /usr/share/emacs/23.1/etc/emacs.ico \
-a '-p /usr/bin bash -l -c "emacs --display=127.0.0.1:0"' \
Is this appropriate or does it violate some guidelines?
