IMHO you could think about change name of the menu (and it
organization), in relation with the discussion on change Photo/Video =>
Media (or item). Now I can't find the email but using "Media" (or
"Item", maybe Media is more appropriate for menu) it is possible to use
an unified menu with gray item in it.
