Well in my opinion the first menubar should be mapped to the top. This way a lot of gtk apps would compile out of the box. If it doesn't work he developer or the porter needs a way to fix the menubar the way it should be.

That's just wrong.

Gtk+ must be able to solve the case when you have multiple menubars. Evolution for instance has at least two: one in the shell and one in the composer.

Why not swap in the first menu in a window's widget tree when the window is brought to the front / given focus? (With special cases to ignore tool windows, etc.)

This would prevent developers having to maintain two separate versions of the menu code for an app, which i can see as only a good thing. Apps would work out of the box, and the right menu for the current window would always be there for the user.
