I think that it is silly to assume that poor developers will not do
some tweaks for OSX. After all, they will need to make .app bundle
and other stuff, just like we are doing for MS Windows. And even if
they don't, in the spirit of open community somebody will do that and
create native version of Gimp (like now it is with Gimp.app) or
Freeciv or whatever...
Automatic creation based on currently focused window is just plain
wrong. It is not compatible with Apple HIG and it will not even work
all the time.
What I think will work is to provide OSX top level menu API wrapper
in GTK so we can construct our menus for OSX (remember, it will be
different then any in-window menu). And if some app does not do that,
GTK can create default menu with application name and Quit menu item
with Cmd-Q accelerator in it.
