Don't forget about thousands of users who like this menu item there. It
may be easy to select by mistake, but it has its place in the main
menu, and also there's a confirmation asked when one chooses Mark all
read, unless it has been dismissed with "Don't ask me again". In that
case, the confirmation dialog can be re-enabled using
Configuration/Preferences/Summaries - "Confirm before marking all
messages in folder as read".

Short answer, I'm not in favor of removing it...
