That's a good suggestion, but there are a lot of nice features that the Qt
Quick MenuBar has (keyboard shortcuts, roll-over to adjacent menus when
moving the mouse, etc) that I would rather not re-invent. I checked the
source code on the MenuBar class and it seems to fall back to a nicely
designed QML class when it can't find a native window. It would be great if
that were exposed to us and we could embed that into other QML items, or at
least use it with a window-type other than ApplicationWindow. Currently you
cannot even use MenuBar with QQuickWindow:

Anyway, thanks for the response, but unless I'm mistaken, there's currently
no way to use the MenuBar class as a sub-item in QML.
