Being able to register menus and have contained plugins would be nice. I
wouldn't want the relative positions of the menus to be determined by the
order plugins were initialized though.

Maybe centralizing a category of menu items would be nice. For things like
VCD/DVD support I'd probably just add a checkbox to the plugin config
screen; registering with a central place would be just as easy. Less
cumbersome than navigating the entire menu tree to disable specific items
(granted you lose that fine level of control, but if you want that, well you
are already editing xml files).
