Agreed. The idea seems so obvious and useful that I wonder how it's
not part of Core yet :)

That would be most excellent, and bonus points if this can land into
2.7 before feature-freeze.
I guess this would require some thinking upfront (I am not plugin
developers), but if all admin-page-creatin' plugins could get this
nifty Settings link by default, it would certainly ease the life of
lambda users, not acustomed to menu appearing out of nowhere (or have
to search for the Settings option).
