There is already a working implementation for mac style menu on Gtk.
Check out

Not to get too far off topic, but this reminds me about how enthusiastic
I was about a GtkApplication class. IIRC ebassi had some prototype code
for this. I believe the idea was that it should/could depend on the
guniqueapp stuff for single instance apps. It could also take care of
some of the session management duties, optionally saving window
position, etc.

To me it seems like the correct place to put things like a default
client side implementation of apps drawing their own windows.
