It can add decoration if it want.  I think most WMs currently add minimal
decoration to menus. Knowing that a particular transient window is a
menu allows you to do cool stuff like hiding the menu when the owner
window is not focused (NextStep style), or adding special pinnable-menu
decoration if the wm desires.
