Could this document be extended to cover the switch between the

One of the goals for the new HIG is to try and avoiding spoon-feeding
people too much, and I'd prefer to avoid listing every possible thing
you might want to include in that menu. In that sense, this bug is an
interesting test case for the guidelines.

In general I would say that they indicate that those items shouldn't
be in the app menu, since they "are specific to a particular window or
view", but I'd be interested to hear how other people would interpret
this based on the draft guidelines, and whether they consider them to
be useful enough.

Nautilus is a single-window app, so window-global is also app-global. The
guidelines are meaningless in this sense...

I not think nautilus is a single-window app.
In the app-menu have an item 'New Window' to open
more than one window.

Also, if you insert a USB drive, and click in the gnome-shell dialog
to open it with Files, it opens in a new window by default. So GNOME
itself as a system treats Files as a multiple-window application.
