fvwm does.  I'm not fluent in french, so I'm not sure I did understand
what the original problem was, but when using emacs' menu-bar, I can
pop-up a menu, then change the workspace via keyboard-shortcuts, and
the menu stays posted on the new workspace while the emacs frame is
gone.  The menu takes effect if I select some entry.

It seems to me that is a question of global grab vs. application
grab.

Other programs seem to issue a global grab while posting the menu, so
the keyboard shortcuts don't reach the window manager, and no Desktop
switching takes place until the menu is unposted.
