It would be nice to have a generic interface for this so that people could easily add their own actions that are commands defined in .m files."

Deletion already has a menu item, but fill and insertion do not.

Also, a generic interface is already available if we were to use the uicontextmenu() code from figures. The whole point of that is to be able to quickly add a right-click menu to a figure with callbacks that can be user code.
