"Insert Shuffled" is not something you use when manually creating
playlists very often. It's something used primarily in stead of manually
playlisting, rather than as part of it. If you need to do it more than
once, it's easier to just add everything linearly to the playlist then
turn on shuffle.

As for queuing, yeah, sure, I left that out. Again you don't use it when
doing real playlist creation. It's for adding temporary items to
playback. This feature makes "playlist creation" of the sort where you
create permanent, saved playlists much easier. Since this is currently
one of the most frustrating features (and many people stick to the PC
for playlist making because of it) it's still a net win, even if we
leave off queuing. All of the other options are basically not things you
need a "shortcut" to because they aren't really repetitive actions. And
even queuing ought to rarely be repetitive. If you need a large number
of "queued" files you can still insert them and just not save the playlist.
