I agree. It used to be one of the top rules in Apple's Interface  
Guidelines that there should not be any hidden functionality.

Then Safari came along and breaks that rule left and right. Menu's  
change when Option is held down, now the stupid context menu as well  
forcing my hand back to the keyboard... I personally hate that hidden  
functionality. There are to many hard to discover features in TM as  
is. No need to add to that on purpose! Pop Quiz: How is incremental  
search in TM activated?
