I've thought of one other concern about this.  The HIG basically forbids
using menu items in your menubar that are multiple words, and for good
reason.  This could be very difficult for some applications.  Take, for
example, gucharmap.  I'm sure we don't want a 'gucharmap' menu.  We'd
rather have a more human-friendly name, like the names used in the
applications menu (not to be confused with the "Application Menu" we're
discussing here).  But "Unicode Character Map" isn't a very good menu
