the topic, too and my answer might be completely wrong.

Wouldn't it be better to address that problem than to ignore it?

I think you have to add a MenuCreator class. That class will then be
called during JMeter's initialization and can be used to attach menu
entries to the tools section.
I looked at JMeterMenuBar#findMenuCreators, JMeterMenuBar#makeToolsMenu
-- which calls JMeterMenuBar#addPluginsMenuItem(_, _,
MENULOCATION_TOOLS) -- and CompileJSR223TestElements.
Perhaps you would like to extend the docs on plugin development to
include an example of extending the menu bar (after you have finished
your task at work :)
