Gnome In the GNOME bugzilla, there is an ongoing discussion about whether or not to include a patch into the default GNOME installation which would enable GNOME to (optionally) have a global application menubar, similar to that of the Mac OS and KDE (in the latter it is optional and off by default). Installation instructions and .deb packages, as well as a 60-page (and counting) discussion of the patch, are available on the UbuntuForums. Read on for a poll on this issue.

That's an excellent point though. The advantages of a global menubar must be considered in light of the fact that a global menubar isn't a drop-in replacement for a per-window one. If this feature were included in GNOME, it would have to be a non-optional feature, with wording in the HIG to ensure that people design their menus appropriately.
