Disable Go to Folder in Finder's Go menu

Pointless. This is "security by obscurity", which is not security at all.

An alias or a symlink can be created elsewhere to point to any location on the local filesystem. You can deliver such a file via email or portable media. The proper method is to secure the system. No two ways about it.

I think in a school or lab environment, where Terminal has been disabled through MCX or profiles, this is a useful hint.
