Since we are on the subject,
We have a ticket about this but we were planning to solve this matter in 
reltool, i.e without adding the .app file in the applications that are 
missing them.
You write,
"

  this causes problems with some tools; reltool in particular

"
What are these other tools, except reltool that it causes problems for? 
This is very interesting for us.
