Yes.. well it's just out of convenience really. When I
define/initialise a structure of that type, I just fill it in with
whatever number of items a given menu/submenu happens to have, then
GCC finds out by itself how many items there are, and sizes the array
It's like when initialising strings: char text[] = ""blah blah"; 
it's too much to count how many characters there are in each and every
string you define, GCC is much quicker (and more reliable) at counting
letters than I am ! ;-)
