Referring to Desktop is what I tried to avoid in the menu.
The name Desktop says nothing to the user who doesn't know
that the package name is desktop.el.

The Info node name describing this feature is named
"Saving Emacs Sessions", this is why "Save Session"
makes sense.  Also the same node says: "save the state of Emacs",
so maybe a good name would be "Save State between Sessions"
where "between Sessions" is the same text that is already
presented in "Save Place in Files between Sessions".
