Yes!  And no.  It depends what you want at the particular time.
Sometimes you have multiple versions of a definition, with all
but one commented out, and you *want* Imenu to present you with
all of them, for easy navigation among them.

No, not useless - see above.  Sometimes annoying, sometimes useful.

It's not great to impose this behavior on users: they lose a feature
that way.  Better to let users choose, and let them toggle the behavior.

(I do that in Imenu+, for instance: the Imenu menu always contains
these additional menu items, which affect Imenu behavior: Toggle
Case-Sensitive Name-Sort, Toggle Ignoring Commented Defs, Toggle
