You will only see Configure > MyTool on MyTool Perspective
and only if MyTool developer will elect to put it on MyTool Perspective.

preferences for any tool, or a menu to contain it. It is redundant if
there is already a Preferences item in the workbench menu.

Object centricity is usially a good idea.
In this case customization is not a part of main workflow.
You customize your car and then you drive it.
You don't customize your car while you drive it.
DS> I agree. The customization which you refer to is not part of the main
workflow. Ideally, the user should never have to customize the preferences
for a tool. Everything should just work well. Hence, the configure item
for each tool does not need a dedicated item. A single item will do.
Should we put it in the Workbench menu?
