I agree too - it sounds neat in theory, but in practice, having a constantly
changing menu soon becomes a pain in the backside. If you want to go that
route it makes more sense imo to dedicate a menu context button to send the
selected menu entry to a 'favourites' type menu off the root. That way
every user can easily copy (move?) their most used options there, and they
stay put.
