Actually the global menu per se is not the issue here. Almost every
commenter likes it; just not the way it behaves _exclusively_ (not "by
default", since there are barely any options). So I would rephrase to say
"All to save what? A few hours of a developer introducing the already
designed options and just a maybe bigger but better code to maintain?"
THAT's the "benevolent dictator"'s responsibility and only his (just read
his despising words along the whole thread). His disdain for proper
reasoning and logic is simply appalling and frankly depressing.

Here's hope that some of the brilliant minds at Canonical (definitely not
his), will take on the responsibility of making Unity 8 a better Unity by
including AT LEAST the chance of add-ons that allow third parties to tweak
it. Creating non-extensible software in 2014 sounds unbelievably
prehistoric, so -again- I expect that we have AT THE VERY LEAST, an
extensible-by-design Unity. At that point, we can stop worrying about
Shuttleworth's reasoning skills and simply build persistent add-ons instead
of patches that will be overwritten every other week.
