Thats the problem, I would never have looked for remove duplicate
under "format", for me if it goes in the standard menu it goes in
"commands", maybe under "duplicate line" command.

Agree here, one top level one in tools and the rest under it.  Except
for complete units of functionality like "debug" that should go in the
top level.

Maybe there should be a filetype specific top level item too, where
all the language specific plugins could put stuff, and over time we
could migrate language specific things to it.
