Why should it?  We show the menu for the current major mode, which is
IMO more useful than basic editing.

Is it? What feature of your major mode do you use more often than copy/paste? 

It's a pity too many newbies don't see the menu bar and the tool bar,
because all this was arranged to have all the important features be
readily available through the different UI elements.  With the menu
and the tool bar removed, we don't have enough UI elements to satisfy
all the important needs.  Which is one more reason to encourage
newbies to start with the vanilla Emacs, not with the hyper-loaded

I believe that mouse users have muscle memory for right-click, 15 px down, left-click, where we have M-w. Moving the mouse to the top of the screen for the same operation is a lot slower.
