This is what I had in mind when I started this thread:

This is an actual Steinberg Nuendo Menu:

Undo
Redo
History
Cut
Copy
Paste
Delete
Functions
Render in Place
Range
Select
Quantize
Reset Quantize
Rename Objects
Rename Events From List
Move to
Group
Ungroup
Lock
Unlock
Mute
Unmute
Glue
Automation Follow Events
Auto Select Events Under Cursor
Enlarge Selected Track
Zoom
Macros
Profile Manager
Key Commands
Preferences

Steinberg Menu Organized Alphabetically:

Automation Follow Events
Auto Select Events Under Cursor
Cut
Copy
Delete
Enlarge Selected Track
Functions
Glue
Group
History
Key Commands
Lock
Macros
Move to
Mute
Paste
Preferences
Profile Manager
Quantize
Range
Redo
Rename Objects
Rename Events From List
Render in Place
Reset Quantize
Select
Undo
Ungroup
Unlock
Unmute
Zoom

Editing would become faster with the Organized Menu regardless if is for
beginners and Pros alike.
These are Menus with more than 40 items, more than 60 with the sub menus,
that have been growing, and will grow even larger with time, and we may get more Menus.
I would never get lost or waist time in the second menu above.

Muscle memory required for the Organized Menu is close to zero, because all you need
to know is the alphabet. So I cannot possibly prefer the first Menu, even though I use it everyday.
Of course many will be shortcuts, but many will not, and you still need to search through the Menu.

Other DAWs that I’ve tried are alphabetical, and it immediately helps at all levels.

The best quote from this whole thread goes to Carvin Man that said:
“The alphabet is one of the greatest inventions ever... just saying ;)
