Please feel free to bug all of these packages, for this is a violation of
Policy :)

Section 10.6. "Menus" says:

     All packages that provide applications that need not be passed any
     special command line arguments for normal operation should register a
     menu entry for those applications, so that users of the `menu' package
     will automatically get menu entries in their window managers, as well
     in shells like `pdmenu'.
