Only you can answer this question. If you only have a hammer in your
toolbox, use the hammer. If you have some patience and a scalpel, you can
be more selective.

BTW, there's nothing that says that any file created by GNOME must have
"gnome" in the file name, and nothing that restricts GNOME from using files
that don't have "gnome" in the file name.  It's a good start, but the
process continues.
