It is standard design practice to enable/disable menu and toolbar items as 
appropriate.  Matthew mentioned this in bug 2246.  I haven't suggested this as 
of yet because often it involves quite a bit of additional logic to the code.  
But Matthew's mention reminded me of it and it does deserve its own bug.  
Enabling/disabling menu/toolbar items is very useful to users in helping them 
understand what they can do in certain contexts and with certain objects, and 
it also helps decrease menu/toolbar complexity.
