1. The `Revert...' menu items should be controled by either :enable or
:visible.  It makes no sense to show a user an active menu item `Undo
Edits in Customization Buffer' if there have been no edits.  After a
user clicks this, undoing any edits, this menu item should disappear or
be dimmed.  Similarly for other menu items.
 
2. `Apply' is not helpful as is.  The name does not sufficiently
indicate what it does (apply what? to what?).  The help echo is also not
helpful enough: `Apply settings (for current session only)'.  What
settings?  And again, if no settings have been changed (edited) then
this button should not even be available.  Its presence when it is a
no-op just confuses.
