bug#14244: 24.3.50; Make menu-bar `Buffers' menu be usable normally

I'm writing this without a lot of investigation.  Apologies if I am
incorrect in some way.
My impression is that menu-bar menu `Buffers' is (still) hard-coded and
created dynamically.  It does a library or a user no good to, e.g., add
a submenu to `global-buffers-menu-map' - that will be wiped out by the
dynamic re-creation of the menu.
Can this not please be remedied, so that the dynamic fiddling still
happens but that there is a real anchor point - a real
`global-buffers-menu-map' to which a user can add submenus etc. without
having them be ignored/overwritten/disappear?
I have a menu, for instance, of Icicles commands that pertain to
buffers.  I add it as a submenu of `File': `File' > `Icicles' >
`Buffers'.  It would be more logical to have it as `Buffers' >
`Icicles'.  I've had it where it is for years, but a user reminded me
that it would make more sense under `Buffers'.  I had forgotten the
reason that it is not.
If I'm missing something simple, please advise.
