Why is "Set Component to Virtual" on the right click quick menu?

SolidWorks... why would I need quick access to setting a component to virtual? Seriously lame.  I model fast and use the program very quickly, so having "make virtual" right near "configure component..." is stupid.  Configurations are used for everything....material, shape (form), different part name, etc.  Making a component virtual (externally or internally) is only useful for differentiation between the part you want virtual and the rest of the components in your assembly.  Therefore, needing it to be a quickly accessible is simply unecessary.  It could be accessible only from the feature manager tree, which would be much better for me not accidentally making a part virtual that has like 20 configurations.
