True. My reasoning behind this question is more general: won't that
open some can of worms in respect of arguing about customizable menus

In that case, shouldn't we also consider dropping the quick menu
completely? The main idea of changing a setting with a key combo
instead of entering a menu isn't working on most players at all. (And
I use the quickmenu rarely -- mostly to change the file view settings
to show .rockbox ...)
