Simply because I've only seen GAction
as a counterpart of GApplication apis.

I was not aware of their usefulness 
outside of the 'application' context

are you arguing that perhaps GAction
as well as the encapsulating GMenuModel abstract interfaces should find a living area below libgio ?
(or as I recall, "above" since your
stack was upside down ;))

Personally I think data models & abstract interfaces for working with GObject look better in libgobject than
in libgio, it's not worth arguing that to the death but obviously, avoiding another occurrence of libgnomeui is worth arguing for...
