I think this really is a killer feature we lose.

Please open a bug, but we could totally add such a menu that opens in an external browser.

Also the extension points for this menu are used by products based on Eclipse. When Mylyn now is no longer pre-packaged with the EPPs it’s really a hassle for Eclipse based products to have a dependency to Mylyn.

Products that use the extension points do declare a requirement on Mylyn bundles or packages, Mylyn is already part of the product target-platform at build-time, and installing the product will transitively install Mylyn from the product repo, or from SimRel. I don't think it makes a big difference.
