I think the report mentions the "Go Child" as an example where behavior is OK.
To my mind only remaining item in the report are items in the Edit
menu that need to switch sensitivity.

These options work on a link under the cursor, so they need to become
sensitive only when the cursor is at a link. This requires the
pageview to send a signal when the cursor enters / leaves a link. This
signal can then be used to toggle sensitivity of these actions.
Btw. this discussion should probably go in the bug tracker comments,
not to the whole mailing list.
