Seriously, the idea of using <nav> for a menu when we have <menu>
is more than I can bear. Furthermore, a application's menubar is
not, semantically-speaking, about navigation.

I recommend a new type value <menu type="menubar">. Content model for it
is made of <menuitem> and <menu type="popup"> elements.
