While I agree that menus are reasonably accessible, I'd say that
logout/shutdown/sleep is a very important option for laptops. They
often make use of this many more times per day than just once. The
panel is much more accessible, as it is in the corner, and the menu it
brings up has large buttons.
Personally, I mute/ adjust volume using keyboard shortcuts established
by my computer's manufacturer, which are IMO even more accessible than
any screen position.
I like the new logout/shutdown menu, and I hope it stays in.
