I think I'll straddle the fence.  Phil is right.  I don't think it is 
minutiae.  However, it does slow down many users from doing commands they 
shouldn't.  And as much as a GUI, done right, can help productivity, 
having a way to access stuff that's been common knowledge for the last 15 
years, like many of the commands, can be useful.  Whacking some of the 
usefulness out of it so that the users will have to work harder to poke 
around in the wrong areas may be enough to reduce their hanky panky. Note: 
 I did say reduce, not eliminate.
Like the analyst who no longer works here that taught the users CLROUTQ 
QEZJOBLOG to reduce their spool files.
Or the application vendor who teaches end users how to mess with job 
priorities and stuff.

It's up to you if "reduce" is good enough.
