"Unity 2D Shell" inappropriately described as an "application"

Bug Description

apport 1.95-0ubuntu1, unity-2d 5.8.0-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu Pangolin

1. Experience a crash in unity-2d.

What happens: "The application Unity 2D Shell has closed unexpectedly. ( Show Details ) ( Leave Closed ) ( Relaunch)"

What's wrong with this:
* Unity is not an application, and people shouldn't have to know it by name.
* "Relaunch" is offered as a possible action, but unity-2d has already relaunched.

What should happen: "Sorry, Ubuntu has experienced an internal error. ( Show Details ) ( Continue )"

This might be caused by unity-2d having a .desktop file when it shouldn't.

session/untiy-2d.desktop does not have NoDisplay=true set. Both panel/app/unity-2d-panel.desktop and shell/app/unity-2d-shell.desktop have it set, however.
