Microsoft's own instructions[1] for a shortcut menu include

"Don't make commands only available through shortcut menus. Like
shortcut keys, shortcut menus are alternative means of
performing commands and choosing options. For example, a
Properties command is also available through the menu bar or the
Alt+Enter access key."

I think this means TortoiseSVN is correct to provide both. I
don't find it annoying to see Subversion operations in the File
menu, though, so perhaps I'm biased.
