I think so.

The usage of setDelayedMenu is very limited in KDE:

In Kate, this is used e.g. in the "New Session" dialog. Clicking on "New" will 
create a new empty session. Holding the buttong down longer opens a menu, 
where you can also copy the current selected session. I'd be fine with 
removing the delayed menus from Kate if it was decided to drop this feature, 
as simply always showing the menu with two choices is fine as well.
