Besides, are context menus all that undiscoverable? Windows has them
too, so most newbees should be used to them by now, I guess.

Regular context menus, for selected icons and suchlike, are still best considered an expert feature; you'd be surprised how many Windows users have no idea they exist.

Context menus for actual menu items, as we have on the Applications menu, are just bizarre and horrid, IMHO :) With a little bit of tweaking in the Add to Panel dialog, we could (and should) do away with them altogether.
