On a similar note: on my testbox a windows partition (vfat) on the system
(/dev/hdaX) appears on the desktop as an icon with a name "idedisk" which
doesn't mean anything at all to somebody who doesn't know what "IDE"
means. And in any case I don't really see all the partitions on the system
on my *desktop* - inside the "Computer" window, why not.

Ok if nonremovable media stops from appearing on the desktop then I've no
further complaints wrt this.
