Yeah - did I mention that there are a lot of open questions? ;-)

Except that Canonical is in a position where they can patch
non-GNOME/GTK+ applications (Firefox, Libreoffice, Qt, Motif, ...),
while GNOME is not.
(But than I'm not a big fan of global menus - in my opinion the top bar
should be system space outside applications - with the exception of the
app menu for _application_ actions (not window-specific actions like
copy/edit or items like menu bars))
