Currently tvtime's desktop file does not match the executable name. This introduces problems with apps that want to match desktop files to running applications (eg: docky).

Can you please change net-tvtime.desktop to tvtime.desktop? There are more solutions to this, but this is the simplest one.

This task depends upon

You are right, there is nothing in the spec. I think it's more of a convention.
To map legacy apps without startup notification, they search for a <WM_CLASS>.desktop.

According to this thread you could also
set the StartupWMClass in the desktop file to match tvtime's WM_CLASS.
