True. The only reason for suggesting it the way I did is because of the need to change the menu when the active window changes. By the way, we need to specify what happens to the menu if the user doesn't create one for a new window. It would feel rather odd if most of the menu entries disappeared...
By the way, I have no idea how all of this would work with "full screen views" that will be introduced by Lion. I also have no immediate desire to upgrade to Lion because the new features don't look like things I actually want...

Appended is the proper approach, I think (that's the impression I have from looking at other applications anyway).
