I agree that the spec let an action be potentially referenced in more
than one place, e.g. as you say, at the level zero of the context menu 
_and_ as a subitem of a menu.

I would suggest that in such a case the action be actually shown more
than once, i.e. exactly where .desktop configuration tell us to do so.

In my mind, if TargetContext=false, the action cannot be displayed in
the context menu at all, whether it is at the level zero of the tree or
in a submenu.

Do you agree on that ?
