Personally, i think adding them to the file menu only clutters the menu
since you would have 4 items in the file menu starting with "Close ..."

also, when i use an IDE, i tend to right-click the tab label to see a
list of possibilities
i think the "close all" and "close all but this" menuitems are usefull
(the "close" is indeed rather pointless) because navigating through 2
items is much faster then going to the file menu

i don't think it feels "natural" to navigate in the notebook by going
to the main menubar
i prefer the solution with the extra arrow, but i have no idea if this
can be done in a sane way
