A good example of slowed down usage is Inkscape.  Open the Path menu and
you have to read most of them to actually find "Division" where it used
to be a quickly identifiable by its icon (not to mention that the
difference between Division and Exclusion was better served by an icon).

That's my 2 cents as a user: unless studies have generally identified a
speed up in menu usage, I would think it was a move the opposite.
