At Vienna, Boris did a talk about the management of the plugins and 
their position in the menus. If I remember correctly it was agreed that 
plugins should be dispatched in the pre-existent menu to avoid having 
one 3km long menu.

For example, Stefan Ziegler's CadTool is creating is own menu in QGIS 
with only two items in it which is not consistent :
- the old fashion way would have been to create a new entry in the 
plugin's menu
- the other way would be to create an entry in the 'vector' menu and 
representing there all the possible actions so one could reach them with 

What is your point of view ?
