 What do you think about all this?

I think the accelerators part of your suggestion is a great idea, although they should be named something different as it took me a while (years ago:) to figure out that "accelerators" was the Gtk+ name for keyboard shortcuts. Lots of people don't even know that accelerators can be defined on the fly, so highlighting this feature would definitely be A Good Thing, imho.

I don't think GUI customizations should be allowed at that level though. I expect it would lead to some apps that are customizable, some that aren't, which would create a massive amount of user interface inconsistency; something the whole Gnome API is designed to avoid.
