Even though I'm personally not going to use it (yet -- my business is
going to stay 1 or 2 persons for a while more), I can definitely see
why you'd want to have this kind of functionality. I also think this
is a very nice enhancement for SMB businesses which - if we can keep
the menus clean - shouldn't burden many users not wanting to use it. A
compelling reason to start using LSMB.
