Comment:
The first example of the menu element is about how to markup a menubar in
HTML. For the markup a menu in the toolbar state was used.
However, the section about native ARIA semantics describes that it's not
possible to change the semantics of a menu in the toolbar state to menubar.
So the menu element example used a menu in toolbar state to mark up a menubar.
But then you're not allowed to set the right semantics.
Maybe you could introduce a menubar state of the menu element or just allow
the use of ARIA's menubar role on the menu element.
