I beleive that /usr/share/your-app-name  is the right place.
This is where most apps put scripts, glade files, other bits
and pieces that are cpu/arch independent (i.e. don't contain 
cpu-spcific compiled bits), and don't require per-machine 
changes, and are static/unchanging.  This allows clever sysadmins 
to NFS-mount /usr/share read-only on a bunch of clients. 

Yes, theres a standard, FSSTND or something like that, the
'file system heriarchy standard', all major distros including redhat
and suse are now certified as conforming.
