Not necessarily.  I do need to advocate for an alternate method that is
guaranteed to summon the default context menu, as the spec recommends in a MAY.
 There are use-cases (largely game-related, I think) to disable the context
menu popping up from a right-click.

But if you're supplying your own context menu, I don't see a reason to require
even that.  A single option on the menu that summons the default context menu
would suffice.
