For emacs-w3m alone, it doesn't matter where the "w3m", "bookmark" and
"Tab" are placed. But "File", "Edit" "Options" etc are present in
almost all modes. Making them dislodged from the usual places causes

Many packages in Emacs have already brought more than 3 items into the
menu bar for example outline-mode, message-mode and gnus etc. And for
modern monitors, the menubar and toolbar have only taken 40% of the
screen width as in my two year old computer.
