Removing things from the menu does not make much sense to me. After
all, they are still available from the UA panel. So the bad experience
can still be had.

Removing the menu altogether seems even worse, after it has figured
prominently in every shell screenshot for the last year or so.

I think we should make try to make things work as well as we can for
3.0 and promise to do better for 3.2. And yes, that will mean making
compromises and accepting an on-screen keyboard that may not follow
the design vision to the pixel.
