What kind of window settings would be in there?
The application couldn't put application settings into this menu as it 
couldn't rely on the menu being present, e.g. the window manager could not 
draw decorations at all, or just tiny borders.

That's why application settings are usually part of the application itself, 
accessible by the usual means (menu, context menu, keyboard shortcut)
