No.  I think the tour is much more important than the tutorial.  (The tutorial
is mostly for people who want to learn to use Emacs without a mouse.  The tour
is for people who want to learn to use Emacs's useful features, like Font Lock
mode and M-x compile.)  So you should rather remove the tutorial to some
submenu.  Or you should remove items from the menu, maybe "Psychotherapist" or
"Getting New Versions".

I have never tried Doc-View mode.  Is it as good as most other PDF viewers?
