[opensuse-packaging] Desktop categories: mismatch in brp-desktop and rpmlint

I have a problem with a desktop file. The upstream one has


but brp-desktop stops the build with Insufficient Category.

ERROR: No sufficient Category definition: /var/tmp/playitslowly-1.1.0-
Errors in installed desktop file detected. Please mail stbinner@xxxxxxx, if
you think this is wrong.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.79930 (%install)

So I changed it according SUSE Packaging Conventions [1] to


but now I got a rpmlint warning:
playitslowly.x86_64: W: invalid-desktopfile
/usr/share/applications/playitslowly.desktop value
"Multimedia;Player;AudioVideo;AudioVideoPlayer;" for key "Categories" in group
"Desktop Entry" contains an unregistered value "Multimedia"; values extending
the format should start with "X-"
.desktop file is not valid, check with desktop-file-validate

So what should be in Categories which will pass brp-desktop and rpmlint
checks? And is there any reason why we have a double check of the same thing?
