In that case I would prefer rather icon on panel to seperate Help menu
(no serious operating system including major linux distributions and
KDE/GNOME environment has 4 items-menu on panel by default). Removing
icon for those who needn't it is more natural, easier and much less
time-consuming than thinking about removing menu item.
