Please check with the recent GRASS 7 (trunk), there is "make copy in the current mapset" for maps outside current mapset. Also, the context menu is pretty long already, so adding 2-3 new items is not ideal. Do you have any other idea how to solve this? Some concrete GUI design would be nice. For example, there is an idea of separate GRASS Catalog for managing maps and projections, but this is far from being implemented and it might be overkill for your request.

If I may add my opinion, I think adding these 2-3 items to the context menu would be a great addition. The easy of use this would offer would easily outweigh, i.m.h.o., the possible disadvantage of a longer context menu (I actually think it isn't that long in any case).

If the length of the context menu is really a problem, an alternative could maybe to have two or three buttons next to the layer name (now there is one, which offers the same context menu as when using right click). Using e.g., three buttons, one can have one for all options related to the visualization (opacity, zoom, rename, remove, etc), one for report options (profile, metadata, histogram) and one for file / data-set operations. Just my 2ct.

Please check also Data Catalog tab in available in trunk (7.1), it needs some feedback.

This issue is still valid.

1) add a map to layer tree

2) go to Data Catalog and rename

3) layer item in layer tree is invalid (map does not exists)

This should be fixed.
