OpenStep, GNUstep "The Etoile project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.2 of the Etoile User Environment for UNIX-like systems. The Etoile project aims to produce a user environment for desktop and small form-factor devices, with tight integration between components. The 0.2 release is primarily targeted at developers interested in a GNUstep-based environment. This release includes improvements to the Camaelon theme engine, providing a clean and modern appearance to GNUstep-based applications. This is combined with the Etoile Menu Server, providing a horizontal menu bar similar to that found in Mac OS, and making this the first Etoile release with enough features in place to be usable on a daily basis." There are screenshots too.

The more I think about it, the more I see that you are so right.

The standard would have to be pretty extensive, though. It must include a standard for "menulets" as Étoilé calls them, and it must not take away features found in existing systems. Menus have to be tear off-capable, and there might need to be an option for whether teared off menus are shown only for the focused application.
