That's like saying files shouldn't have context menus because you can do
[nearly] everything there by left-clicking in some form. Don't take this
personally, but it's a poorly thought out response.
The reason why this makes so much sense is the context of how people reach
the decision that they need to remove something.
*When I load up the Application menu, I want to run a particular application
*. I'm trying to get things done. Interrupting that process to search for a
package in a package manager, gets nothing accomplished. But if I could
right click and deal with 90% of the process *from the menu*, my system
would undoubtedly be less cluttered and I'd be happier.
I don't see how adding context menus to the menu items could confuse anybody
-- there *are* context menu's on almost everything else in Ubuntu -- I argue
it's confusing that there aren't context menus!
