I looked at the status of this today in Ubuntu 18.04. GNOME Software has
been updated so that it shows better results in this case instead of an
error. (But it's still not perfect. Try gedit as the test case instead
of nautilus.)

Seb Bacher suggested that gnome-shell is probably wrong for sending the
old .desktop ID to gnome-software instead of the new one so I'm opening
a gnome-shell task here.

We also discussed this general issue in the Ubuntu Desktop team today.
We do not intend to drop the compatibility desktop files now for Ubuntu
18.04 LTS since they provide a useful service to upgrading Unity users.
It looks like we will probably drop them in 18.10 though since they
should no longer be needed then for GNOME or Unity.
