A better method would be to copy mainmenu.xml to
~/.mythtv/mainmenu.xml and edit that version, it will override the
default when you run mythfrontend. I suspect that any changes made in
/usr... would be wiped out on an upgrade.
I love the way myth handles this, it lets me completely customize my
menus and not have to worry about the changes disappearing.
