Well, possibly, but where's the fun in that? :¬)
I am unsure whether merging the fairly-well-known "cog = settings"
symbol and the pretty-much-universal "power off" symbol was inspired
brilliance or a bad move. It's clever but I suspect too clever, and
the symbol doesn't shout "important menu here" - it's the end of a row
of little icons.
OTOH I can't come up with a better idea.
I am amused that some of the screenshots on the Ubuntu site and wiki
still show the old, 11.x pre-cogwheel power symbol.
