Imho the "Remove from launcher" item will be problematic as well.

I mean, if an application is currently running, seeing a "Remove from launcher" quicklist item could lead to confusion.
Clicking on it, in fact, you wouldn't expect that it will be removed only when in the not-running state.

So, I'd add something like "Keep always in launcher" and well... Something like "Don't keep in launcher when not running", but with a shorter string :)

Setting to incomplete on the design task as I agree that having "Remove from launcher" on a running instance would be very confusing as it wouldn't remove it from the launcher at that time.

@JonhLea
What happens if an application registers a "Quit" menu item?
