Snipping the RA menu item will not lead to fixing the menu system for real
users - that responsibility ends up coming down to the distribution. It
certainly won't lead to fixing the root problem - that is, getting rid of
the menu model entirely. I would accept this rationale for a fairly large
change with obvious follow-through benefits for all of our users (not just
the "community users" you've pointed out here). I can't accept it for a
small, anal retentive change that has no direct benefits whatsoever. It's
nitpicking, not moving forward.
