I agree that this is how palettes should work (of course, not the issue
However, I don't understand your opposition to repeating the "start" option
in the submenu. Any journal item already repeats the default option in this
list; doing the same for activity bundles is only consistent. If we are
going to change this, it is a separate patch.

This is not a bad idea. Again, if you are serious about this, we should
prioritize it and do it, as a separate patch; and I'd be happy to work
