the right-click menu in the launchers for e.g. Empathy or Transmission show an entry labeled "Quit". Clicking this item does not make the applications quit, it merely closes their respective main window.

Quit and Close should be treated in a distinctive manner, this is important to the mental equivalent of holding on to an appliance and putting an appliance back into the tool shelf.

Does this require further discussion?

I think you are right. It would be nice if applications that support both close and quit, such as Rhythmbox, had both entries in their quicklists so you do not have to open the application window again to quit.
