Agreed on this point, but I am with FengShu regarding a babel menu. I likely 
would not use it that
often (I know the shortcuts relevant to me right now), but

1) it would advertise the babel functionality a little bit more if it is shown 
in the org menu

2) for a beginner, it would be much easier to use org-babel if commands like 
execute source block
or section, tangle, un-tangle, ... would be in the menu.

So I would see it as a useful way of promoting babel (and therefore org-mode) 
and also as a nice
reminder of less frequently (but nevertheless usefull) functionality.
