Install app desktop files to share/applications, not in a kde5 subdir Given that binaries are all installed in PREFIX/bin, and have to avoid clashes, doing the same for desktop files is no great issue, and installing into a subdirectory of applications/ just complicates matters for client code that needs to refer to the desktop file (is it "kde5-foo[.desktop]", "kde5/foo[.desktop]" or just "foo[.desktop]"?).
fyi, http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/menu-spec-latest.html , supporting vendor prefixes are not only a good idea, but is strongly encouraged. "... it is recommended that providers of desktop-files ensure that all desktop-file ids start with a vendor prefix."
