) In a "Main" menu or something like that ?

One thing that I have always liked about MacOS is the fact that "Quit" 
is always in the same place with the same keyboard shortcut and it
isn't repeated.  I know this is too much to ask but wouldn't it be
nice if there were only one way to quit an application instead of 2 or 
3?  For instance, with xemacs open I can quite it buy typing the

M-x kill-emacs OR
C-x C-c OR
by clicking on "File", then dragging to "Quit XEmacs" OR
by clicking on the "X" provided by WindowMaker OR
by right-clicking on the titlebar and selecting "Kill" via WindowMaker 

Would it be possible to avoid such confusion in gnome by reducing the
number of ways to quit an application?  I personally like the idea of
eliminating "Quit" from applications or eliminating the "X" from the
window manager.
