I don't want to offend you, but personally I find that the dialogue in
the System menu is much more usable than your proposal.Yours offers
quite some additional features, but IMHO it is not something which
should be on my grandma's desktop (despite this, I'm happy to see the
initiative that you've put into this, and and if it's not used by
default I think it may still be provided as an optional package for
those users who like it).

By the way, there's a specification about this topic on
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Specs/ExitStrategy. The intention
there is to remove options, not to add more.
