Comment(by johnjamesjacoby):

 If I go back in time and remember part of the reason this was switched,
 was because with <2.5 the complaint was not knowing where plugins added
 their menus.

 You activate a plugin and have no idea where its settings are located (yes
 even though it should just be settings or its own tab.) So then the only
 thing left to do is traverse the tabs hoping to find the new entry

 I think it's deciding which is the lesser of the two evils really, and
 since the code exists why not turn it into a preference?
