One of the goals for the new HIG is to try and avoiding spoon-feeding

you might want to include in that menu. In that sense, this bug is an
interesting test case for the guidelines.

I'd like to see clarification as to whether items in the application
menu should be duplicated in the traditional menu bar.  In the past we
decided the answer was no, but most GNOME apps with menu bars have
implemented the opposite. (This is bad for every environment that's not
GNOME Shell.)

We also should clearly define how to handle fallback in environments
where the shell either does not show the app menu or when it
additionally shows the traditional menu bar, as [1] demonstrates.
