1) People like to have control over their systems, and may want to
reduce (or sometimes add to) their menu "clutter".

2) Some people write custom scripts or other such things that they'd
like to be able to run from the menus.  Or you might want the menu item
to start up with some custom options (say you want wine to run a certain
program, for instance).  

3) It's just one of those things that it's crazy to NOT be able to do.  :)
