I agree that current state of menu is better where these items are
grouped. Also TOC is very common at the end of the books in Russian and
nomenclatures -- at the front.
But I agree with another Andrew's proposition:
> I realise this adds another item to a long Insert menu, but an overall shrinkage by one follows if "Footnote" and "Marginal Note" are included under "Note".
The Insert menu is really long and already caused some inconveniences
for me on smaller screens. Also these items ("Footnote" and "Marginal
Note") can be separated by line from the rest in the Note submenu.
