Why would this "clutter" the menu? It is 1 item, alongside links that
already exist to the websites mentioned.

If we were worried about such clutter, we could enable/disable
depending upon the system type you connect to - so if you connect to
Greenplum it offers you Greenplum help etc, but if you don't it skips
that menu option. I have zero interest in putting options on the menus
of pgadmin when used with other products, only in making sure people
that use open source PostgreSQL get access to the open source
PostgreSQL web site. Call it context-sensitive menus. That would
reduce menu clutter by 2 items - in all cases.
