No it shoudn't, because the choices are an application-wide resource and
not related to a specific window.  Therefore choices live in the iconbar
menu -- that's what it's for.

The window position bit is an exception, as you're saying "take the
position of /this/ window and make it the default".  Having this in the
document (window) menu makes a lot more sense than putting it in the
application-wide iconbar menu, because you're asking NetSurf to do
something with a specific window.
