well, i think it implies being able to use a menu like a dialog

Exactly. If you need the menu to behave like a dialog box, use a dialog

Hm, why are you so dogmatic? Normal user uses _left_ click for
opening the menu and _left_ click chooses an menu iterm and
closes the menu.

So it is quite usefull to reuse _right_ click for other task,
such as for selecting multiple items out of the menu at once.

I don't see any reason, why a dialog box must be used if for
most users the menu is optimal way (because they select
only one item most the time) and the minority may use it
with the right click in a more powerfull way.

The problem to be solved is not "How do we modify GTK+ to make it as easy as possible to invoke nested menu items several times in a row in Ardour", but "How can we redesign the Ardour UI so users don't have to invoke nested menu items several times in a row to use the software".

Like you though, I strongly doubt dialog boxes will be part of an optimal solution.
