It would be better to have short-cut menu that corresponds to the layer

For instance, if I have a selection with matching ants, the menu would
have options like:
- fill selection with fg colour
- fill selection with bg colour
- stroke selection
IMO, the current short-cut menu isn't so helpful.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by a "short-cut menu that
corresponds to the layer content".

A context menu that acts like a real context menu, i.e. shows options
that are most relevant to the current context either exclusively or at
least in some kind of prominent position, e.g. at the top. This has been
discussed a few times already, but not real plans or work have been done

A downside is that it would change the order of the option in the latter
case (think of e.g. the Select menu being sorted to the menu bottom is
there is no selection) and not show some at all in the former case (if
e.g. all disabled options would not be shown at all in GIMP menus).
