Sadly, another area where the traditional camera manufactures are lagging behind.

That aside Canon seem like clearest and have started to add in help/descriptor factors in some of the menu features - as in some text that explains what the menu function does.

Have started to add?

My Nikon D2H (and every single one after that) from year 2003 has the "question mark" button that explains every menu option.

It's a shame that this is really only a token gesture - with confusing things like custom settings or focus options there should be a full 'help' function built into the camera that explains what the different options do (without you having to dig out the manual, or go Googling)

There is a full page of text for each option in my cameras. Not that I've needed them after the first time two decades ago, but it is there. I don't believe your assertion that Canon has only now started to add this functionality to some menu features.
