Indeed, "M-x" is designed for commands that do not have a short key

I can not really argue against you, you are definitively more experts than me on this. However I still think that M-x is a central feature. I do not think of those commands that I do not have a key binding for in my Emacs as "left overs". For me they are enhancements. And the ability to write enhancements to Emacs is a central feature ... ;-)

On the other hand I like David's latest icon. Maybe the small icon could be changed to just have an "E" instead of "Emacs" (which is a bit hard to read on the 16x16 icon)?
