Sorry, had to ponder this for a bit.

I do not like the idea of pushing Direct Formatting back into the context menu,
it is not necessary when we have the Sidebar decks--Properties & Styles.

And for Draw TextObjects we provide the Sidebar Properties deck showing style
or direct formatting, and in Draw itself we provide the Styles Deck to
manipulate a Draw Text Object box holding text cursor focus.

So, it is not clear that a Context menu is *required* in the general case.

But that said, for MUFFIN modes where we suppress Sidebar use, the context menu
*would* be of use--and if I recall at the 4.4 -> 5.0 cut over we had left that
on the table. Jay had proposed a context sub-menu for Direct Formatting [1]. As
then, I would be responsive to exposing a DF sub-menu in those MUFFIN modes
when Sidebar is otherwise hidden.

But I would not put clutter of DF back directly on the root of context menus
anywhere in the GUI.
