Yes that was my preference originally too; in the original menu design (see it was called Desktop Settings. 
I'm not too keen on multiple levels of nested menus.

I  believe the reason why this wasn't adopted was that people were concerned that
there would be too much of a performance hit (about ~3secs on my p600 laptop) in 
firing up Nautilus.
