That could be solved by adding a couple of things.

First I think recently activated plugins should be a separate group in  
the plugins list just like recently de-activated. That way it's easy  
to get to the configure link next to the de-activate link to the right  
of the plugins description.

Second I think it might make sense to mark newly added menu items (by  
plugins) in a different colour. Like the message banner when saving a  
post and activating a plugin.

I don't think it would make sense to have a separate plugins section  
in admin. Especially for users that are just publishers and aren't  
admins or technicians. They use a site with an admin interface. Not  
Wordpress with plugins activated. If you see the semantic difference. :)
