"Quick Links" - good use of navigation or cop out?

We have in what I call our "utiity" header navigation ("About," "Sign-in," "Region," etc.) a link + drop-down called Quick Links. This is where we store links to areas of the site that don't get any space on the homepage or in our global navigation, yet are important to us. Personally, I think it's a cop-out, reflecting the poor quality of our information hierarchy + content strategy (that doesn't exist).
However, I'd like to see if there is anything out there that discusses such links - i.e., the 'dumping ground' - as they pertain to usability and/or the information architecture of the site.
