Another naive menu question

This question is about pulldown menus, not popups, etc.

In the menu docs (Revo 1.1.1), there's an item called "Creating a 
stack menu". The implication is/may be that there's a kind of menu 
which isn't a stack menu - a menu for the whole app, perhaps. AFAIKS, 
there are only stacks in Revo (no concept of an overarching project 
as in SuperCard). Given this, what do developers feel is the norm for 
the place of a menu bar in a stack file? I mean the group which will 
be the main bar for a conventional-looking application: in a stack of 
its own, in the mainstack, in a stack which is always open, or what? 
This is perhaps a style question rather than a technical one, but I'd 
like to know what people feel is good style in this respect.
