Right. But the *allow* part should be stressed. It is not *must*. Because, for 
example, xtrastatistics.module should not make a menu block extra statistics, 
but should place its menu entries under statistics.

True. But this should be step #2. First we must agree upon the way menus 
should be ordered. IMO these are two separate (related, yes, but not 
depending on one -another) tasks.

Then you want to give away the power to make your own menu structure, suited 
for your personal preferences? -1 on that.

This is not quite clear. At least I fail to see what this has got to do with 
the menu-structures.
