Taking as a reference the "thematic" application I notice the following:

the menu starts on top. Opening or creating a new theme makes the new window appear, but the menu stays on top until you click on the window, at this point it moves in. Sometimes it does that with artefacts.
When the inspector gets shown, which is a further app. window, the menu can migrate to the secondary window even if the main window is still there and visible but is not key anymore.

It's cool and interesting that when you close all your windows it goes and draws the Menu into the top left of the screen. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to track reliably or appear consistently.

However I think that it shouldn't really do this under NSWindows95InterfaceStyle, I think it would be cool for this to be entirely it's own mode of operation (NSMacOSInterfaceStyle perhaps?). I think being able to right click on the application icon or expecting the app to present a window when none is present are workable alternatives.

Again, it's very cool that these options are out there -- I'm really hopeful to take advantage of them in our apps.
