Ok, thanks for the differentiation Jasper.

But that still breaks the sloppy mouse focus doesn't it? How will that be addressed? A keyboard shortcut, etc?

Of course, it would be wonderful or terrible if we have global menus,
but we don't. We have "Application Menus"... what's the difference?

Application menus are explicitly set by the application, and aren't
pulled out of a GtkMenu at all. They're designed with both the Shell
and the Application in mind. If you ever see "File", "Edit", etc. in
an application menu, file a bug. That's not what it's designed for.
It's designed for application-global things.
