Two further comments :

1) The really important settings are the ones that cannot be changed in post processing. I only shoot RAW and I post-process using Capture NX2 so things like picture profile, WB and ADL can be changed after the fact, you dont have to gett hem right in the bank setup. LENR, HINR and ISO settings must be selected before pressing the button. If you post-process in Lightroom or Photoshop, be aware that the raw file converter (ACR or others) may not interpret special Nikon features like picture profiles, ADL or custom WB settings, and it may not allow you to change them afterwards so these settings would then also become important in your bank setup. Also, if you shoot jpeg, then WB, ADL etc cannot be changed afterwards and more attention to these settings is required during shooting.

2) Debatable but I find that I want the picture profile settings in custom settings menu and the flash options in Shooting Menu. This way the CSM group could be aligned more closely to subject types and the Shooting menu more closely to lighting/shooting conditions.
