I consider it clutter, too
also, if you have several comments/suggestions, or related help questions, it's probably a good idea to put them in one larger thread. Even if you don't mind being the guy who has 5 posts pushing everyone's posts further from the forefront. You'll find you'll get more response.
as for why the menu object is such a low priority
it's because construct is a game creator, that has some application creation abilities
completing the game related aspects of it is naturally the higher priority
all posts could be eliminated if the developers had their act together and just documented their work correctly in the first place.
while it's probably a good best practice to document features as you create them.
this is a free program created by developers in their free time.
as someone who's created some poorly documented plugins myself. I realize that in practice, you finish what you can, when you can. It would make no sense for developers to spend large amounts of time documenting something, when some of the documentation will have to be changed in future versions. I'd rather they race toward 1.0, and let the more than capable community add to the wiki. There hasn't been an overwhelming flood of wiki contributors.
But perhaps one of the newer members of the community will see a need there, and fill it. There's also sdk documentation on the wiki, so you can create and document a complete and functional menu plugin if you so wished.
