my applications lens has shutdown/restart/logout buttons

Bug Description

In Unity, my list of applications in my application lens has icons for shutdown/restart/logout. I do not see the reason to have these options in my list of applications, as they are not applications at all. This issue is in Ubuntu 11.10 as well as in 12.04alpha1. Is there any way that we can get these three options out of the applications list?

I would also like to mention that I have all of the items from the system-settings window in my application lens. These are duplicates, and I see no reason for the redundancy. Having an extra 27 items in the applications window (24 from system settings + shutdown/restart/logout) is a complete mess.

Is it possible to go through and flag these "applications" (I put in quotes because I do not view shutdown/logout/restart as applications) as not suppposed to be in the applications lens?

I believe that this would go a long way towards improving the first impressions of Unity, as well as removing visual noise and clutter.
