Are the menu items truly deleted scenes, or were they just crafted for the DVDs?

As for the additional scenes being added, there are complications for certain. I am with benduwan, I would love to have the most complete edit possible. But there are a few little problems. For instance, the opening scene with Luke on Tatooine looking at the battle overhead has two deleted scenes: the black and white one revealed back in 1996, and the 2011 scene revealed on the BDs. Though they share some of the same shots, most are different takes and angles. I have enjoyed combining the two of them in black and white to try to make the most complete version. There are two versions of Luke and C-3PO in the up close speeder with the fake backdrop. One scene was found in Empire of Dreams. It starts a little sooner and carries a bit of dialogue not carried in the version found on the BDs. It is a different take, but can easily be spliced in when the shot changes briefly to the desert in front of them. There are several other bits and pieces, and I have thoroughly looked at them all, particularly with ANH. I can definitely offer suggestions for anything missing.

Thank you for doing this. I have always wanted to see as extended a version as possible. I too care much less about quality and just want to see a complete extended edit.
