If we do, indeed, focus on good UI design, it won't be an ever-changing
minefield of items. There are two places where this list may appear - in the
menu, or as an applet. I'm leaving options open for both.

Note that this was specifically raised in the proposal.

Again, the appropriateness of these items was raised in the proposal. That
said, don't get caught up in false consistency - there is little reason why
excluding those items from the Nautilus Places menu could be seen as harmful
Please try to lean more on constructive arguments than sarcasm in future.
