The reason why we added it to the menu is because "everyone" wanted to
enable it, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible.
OTOH I find it is rather rare for people to want to disable
font-lock-mode (or jit-lock-mode for that matter).

To the point that it has crossed my mind a few times that maybe
a redesign of the code is in order: get rid of the font-lock-mode minor
mode, set fontification-functions globally (i.e. enable jit-lock in all
buffers) and have it call font-lock-set-defaults.
