IMO, it is not important to follow such a convention.  I don't
think the position for the newly added menus are controlled.  If
anything, it looks being decided by chance.  Anyway, one can
control the position as one likes.

I did it since I thought that to place the w3m menu at the front
in the w3m frame is reasonable.  But I didn't modify the order
of menus other than the ones for emacs-w3m.  The precise reason
the position of your menu is different in emacs-w3m buffers is
that `menu-bar-final-items' contains all the menu items including
`tools'.  It is necessary for placing the w3m menu in the front.
Though there might be another way to do it, I don't know so far.
