http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/interactive-elements.html#context-menus

"The default action of this event is that the user agent must show a context
menu built from the menu element.

The user agent may also provide access to its default context menu, if any,
with the context menu shown. For example, it could merge the menu items from
the two menus together, or provide the page's context menu as a submenu of the
default menu."

So most of the time the default context menu will be shown along with page
menu.
Anyway, in some situations (especially for web apps), there is a need to not
show the default context menu.
