That's true for ~/.recently-used.xbel, but ~/.recently-used is not 
cleared when you clean the recent documents from this menu.
The problem is not really a problem of usefulness, but a problem of 
privacy :
- there is no way to disable (a priori) this tracability
- there is a way to clear "recent documents" a posteriori, but it clears 
only one of the 2 log files
