Add "Crop" under Effect Controls
The video effect "Crop" should be part of the other default effects in Effect Controls. I use "Crop" so often that it's annoying to constantly add it from the Video Effects Folder. It just makes sense to add it alongside "Position," "Scale," and "Rotation."

I agree with you Peter, although now I can easily add the Crop effect to any clip simply by using my keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+C. To do this, you need to get the Excalibur plug-in (the #1 most essential Pr plug-in by far IMO!) It allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts to ALL of your effects, transitions and presets. It's a HUGE time saver! It's a shame we need to rely on 3rd party plugins to give us basic functionality that should be included in Pr, but at least there's no need to wait on the Pr team to get this!

I'm surprised there's not more users suggesting this idea!

Like Final Cut Pro "Classic?" Because that's where I remember it used to be.
