> That's unusually wordy for a submenu label. 
Striving to use a single word instead of three is indeed a usual,
prominent reason why people don't understand what the software does.  As
well as putting menu entries where the programmer thinks they must be
and not wondering where the user will look for them. Putting the same
menu entry in several places is not idiot at all if the user is liable
to look for it in different places. Yet, I don't remember having ever
seen that.
A typical case is the Firefox Preferences menu which is under Tools in
Windows and Edit in Unix.  Most of the time, support personal knows
absolutely nothing  about that that and you guessed that the discussions
can be very funny.  I would put Preferences under both.
Unusual does not mean Inappropriate.  It even often means Progress.
