These look rather nice. My only concern with these wireframes is that

1366x768 or 1024x600 screens in landscape mode?

I too was a bit shocked to see the All Possible System Menu, but realized
it's a very extreme case.
Usually a menu would be top ~10 items.

I beg to differ there! On my laptop with its default setup, I would
see 13 items + 5 separators on the menu at all times (increasing to 14
with updates).

Do we have a mechanism for "scrolling" (or its equivalent) when the
menu length exceeds the screen height? How would this interact with
scroll bars inside sub-menus? Is such a mechanism desirable?

It seems to me that these problems are unavoidable with a single
consolidated menu.
