i thought document-centric interface design was a good idea the first
time i saw opendoc, and still do, but i don't think that means to hang
the application menu. adding "plugins" to the document interface could
just as easily add a new tab/treebranch to the "configure" choice in the
application menu, and of course, the application menu would provide the
perfect launchpad from which to add and delete individual components of
the document-authoring kit.
