I guess I'm the first one. I want to propose PLIP 228 for Plone 3.3.
I feel that removing the removal of the 'Add Item' dropdown in many
places in Plone 3 is a regression in behaviour, and makes adding content
a lot more cumbersome. The PLIP has so far only received positive
responses from several people.
The full PLIP can be found here:

Perhaps we could make it optional?

I'm not normally one for having too many options in the UI, but I know that some people were quite confused about the old behaviour too. It looks as if you can "add a page to a page" when you see the "Add new" menu on a page, and it blurs the distinction between folderish and non-folderish objects. For example, I've seen people who expect that if they're looking at /path/to/a-page and they add a new page using the "add new" menu, they expect the URL to be /path/ to/a-page/another-page.

I tend to believe that with proper wording you solve the problem. Just thinking out loud:

When in a folder: Add new...
When in a 'Page': Add new sibling...

Not sure exactly but when chosen right I think you could reinstate the menu in all places.
