Concept for a shell extension:

Show the app menu not based on which window currently has focus, but
which window most recently had focus for X amount of time." (I guess 1
second would be good?) When set to 0, that would degrade to "which
window is currently focused," the current behavior.

That way you could mouse over a window briefly, and while that window
would gain focus, the shell would still be showing the app menu for the
original window you were working with.
