Well, just to add a data point: I'm a heavy Emacs user for the last 15
years, and I find this new behavior very useful in many situations.
It took a bit to get accustomed to, but I find it so convenient I
never even tried to customize it back to what it was before.

I think it's too late to add menu items at this time.  It should be
good enough to make its NEWS entry prominent and near the beginning,
as much as possible under the usual structure of NEWS (first
supported/deprecated targets, then build news, then the rest).
