Yes please. Consistency is good.

Depends on the person, I suppose...

Regarding this, would it be possible to - with the user's permission -
to collect anonymous usage stats about menu items (and e.g. preferences
pages), like Debian does about package usage with their
popularity-contest system?

Or has this been proven a bad idea in other contexts? :)

(Or is it too much work to implement?)

An alternative would be to do surveys periodically e.g. on the website,
but usually people are not very eager to participate in those.
