Remote control and CEC really have very little to do with one another, except
for "HDMI CEC RC integration", which is a feature of CEC.

It would make more sense IMHO to make a "CEC support" menu and move the
CEC drivers and "HDMI CEC RC integration" and "Enable CEC error injection
support" to that new menu. It's a bit odd that those two CEC options are
directly under the Device Drivers menu.

Would that work for you?
