Good thoughts. BTW, I didn’t mean to raise such a ruckus, but I guess a good ruckus is ok now and again.
I am indeed looking from my very limited perspective. We envision that our projects will be similar to the dairy demo, in that there will will be multiple screens open, but one will be what I consider the “main” screen. For instance, there will be a header, maybe a separate navigation screen, maybe popup screens, but most of the real estate will be occupied by this “main” window, showing the principal data and graphics on the current topic. That window would always be swapped with another, so there is only one “main” window open at a time. That would be the screen that I’d tie my menu to, if I could.
This vision takes care of the problem where several windows add duplicate menu items.
Again, I recognize that this comes from a limited perspective and need, so of course you guys need to decide what make sense for you to do.
For now, we’ll probably do something like Nathan’s post re “frame” style navigation but will be interested to see where this all goes in future releases.
