Drop down menu with only one item?

I don't know whether to label this as a defect or enhancement, but either way, I'm not sure if it will make the 2.7 release. I'll assume enhancement (even though it's leaning toward defect to me).
In the current version of 2.7, the Dashboard menu in the sidebar of the administration page only contains one item: Dashboard. Therefore, when you go to your dashboard, there are two links in your sidebar that say the same thing, link to the same place, and are one on top of the other. This seems redundant, and is a waste of space on the sidebar.
There should be code implemented that does away with the "Drop-down" part of a menu with only one item (since clicking on the menu title will take you there anyway). This way, a fresh install of WP will not have the useless dashboard menu taking up space, but as soon as the user installs Akistmet (or any other plugin that puts another menu item under dashboard menu), the menu will regain its drop-down-ability, accommodating the new menu item.
This could also apply to a top level menu added by a plugin that only has one item in it (even though creating such a menu would be frowned upon).
