Hi Christian, all!

Just a small question ... do I get it right that the disabled menu items
get hidden instead of being "grayed out"? Real interest: could you
please explain what the rationale for the change is? As far as I know,
there is currently no platform guideline that requires that (or even
allows that) - but I might be wrong.
