No, and I think it may be a documentation issue - closeStackRequest is
only sent when the user clicks the closebox on a window that has one,
or is told by the current Window Manager (whatever that is at the time)
that a window should close. It doesn't happen due to the results of a
script, which is how you're able to quit at all (is by script). Only
'closeStack' AFAIK is sent whenever a stack closes, and for any reason
(user or script initiated) - unless it's being trapped and not passed
by a frontscript or if lockMessages is currently on.

Yes, this is typical behavior on a Mac - you can close all the windows
of an application and still leave it open. So if you're still showing
*your* menus, they have to come from a stack that is loaded in memory
and so it won't quit.

Yup, and in fact you can see how it's done here:
