IMHO, an Emacs novice needs a quick way to the Emacs manual, not to
the DIR menu.  The Emacs manual is on the Help menu.

Don't you get a tooltip when you your move the mouse pointer above
that inactive menu item, telling you what the menu item does?  If so,
it is _not_ useless, IMHO: the tooltip teaches you what it would have
done if it were active.

So I don't think it should be removed.
