Pardon my ignorance, but here's another possible reason for wanting the icon
and menu anyway: to decide whether the activity is hidden from others. I'm
not sure if this function exists or is planned, but it seems to me a good
idea: a user should be able to 'go invisible' when using a non-shared
activity. (If they're in a classroom, the teacher could notice their absence
from the visible neighborhood, but if they're at home they don't have to
constantly tell the world what they're doing when. Small town gossip is a
powerful force and some steps within reason to limit its scope are
definitely good.)
