I prefer to execute it when a shortcut key is pressed. Why not?
Because then it would not be possible to edit menu items blindly.
For example, I could not blindly add boot parameters to the Linux
kernel (runlevel, root=<whatever>, etc.) to override the default
settings (which I do, indeed, e.g. for my SCSI testing machine
which varying disks with varying partition layout connected, so that
fixed menu items don't help).
