I think the problem was that this wasn't the reason that was being
used to turn it down, when this was the only real valid reason, IMO. 
Unfortunately, I was kind of the one that started it because I was
hoping it could easily be put elsewhere in the menu, but I'm afraid my
comment came across more as "Here's what we should be doing
usability-wise" which was not a well-advised comment considering that
I'm neither the maintainer nor a member of the usability team.  So, I
think I screwed up.  I'm still against it, but only because you claim
that removing the menu item would cause you problems; otherwise I
think it should be approved...
