  Shouldn't it be "menu bar" rather than "top bar"?

Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed
Status in “unity-control-center” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The new "Application Menu" UI in "System Settings -> Appearance ->
  Behavior" refers to the "top bar". I thought it was decided that the
  name of the thing is "menu bar". The desktop guide currently uses
  "menu bar" all over.


  I suppose it ought to be changed to "menu bar" in u-c-c for
  consistency reasons (even if I personally think that "top bar" would
  have been more clear).

  Adding the ubuntu-docs (Ubuntu) task as a reminder of the need to
  include something in the docs about the new feature.

  <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Appearance#PC>: "The 'Appearance' panel's
  'Behavior' [sic] tab should include 'Show the menus for a window:'
  radio buttons, 'In the menu bar' and 'In the window’s title bar'."
