I think maybe I was just posting in excessive brevity.  In principle, I 
agree with what you say, but this whole discussion you raised in 
essence, just "proves your rule" ("prove" in its original meaning, like 
"Pr?fung"), since this led to the reintroduction of Sample Text in the 
context menu, many people including myself understanding what a context 
menu is, and why a context menu is a useful thing.  And I don't think 
it's all over yet -- it's still unclear what else should be in the 
context menu and what might be deleted.

I agree with you about Windows title bar menus -- you just wonder what 
the designers were smoking when they came up with those layouts. They 
pretty obviously were not talking to users.
