Dean is correct, It's each individual plugins choice, not something that is
controlled by the core of wordpress.  Some improved documentation in the
codex on organization and information architecture written with developers
as the target audience might be the best route imho.

The other solution that jumps out to me is the ability to change menu
structure on a user by user basis.  That seems like a nightmare for
documentation and instruction purposes.  I can already imagine a client
accidental moving something and then yelling "There is no add new listed
under Posts"
