Waldo, IMO that's absolutely great!
Having these section titles would even enable us to add more useful RBM
functionality: it might be a good idea to have an "Add action..."
and an "Add menu..." and an "Edit section entries..." entry in that
new RBM menu, so the user could easily add/edit the menu entries
without having to start the menu editor.
Just my 2 pence.
