heck yeah. add a contextualActions function and have the default 
implementation of Containment::contextualActions call it if wallpaper exists.

con: custom desktop containments might break that unintentionally
pro: custom desktop containments can intentionally stop it if they want to.

if we don't think the containment plugin should be allowed to block wallpaper 
actions then just add a separate function in Containment, 
wallpaperContextualActions, and have the contextmenu plugin draw from that 
too. or if ContainmentActions plugins can access the containment's wallpaper 
object directly we don't need a function to forward the data. :)
