But you don't have anything to back up your change.

Most software have the "Open File" as the first item of the first menu.
If you want to change this, you have to explain why.

No, it doesn't. The advanced open file is more complex, and more
confusing (Rémi is right), but it has its uses (sub-file, input-slave,
caching change, MRL customization) notably for video professional.
Therefore, it must be less used than the first one.
