I think that you misunderstand how mac os works. 

Yes, a single menu bar is displayed at the top of the screen. This is correct behavior according to Fit's Law, because you can bang the pointer to the top of the screen and it can't overshoot.

No, applications are not limited to having a single menu bar. It's a one-liner to switch menubars when different window (or notebook tab, for that matter) gets focus.
