I like the empty string even better: these are commands so of course we can
invoke them via M-x (unless they use an "e" in their interactive spec).

I have disabled menu-bar-mode to save some screen real estate, but I still
do use the menus (via C-down-mouse-3).  So I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

Why not "File => New File..." ?

Note that the displayed name of "<menu-bar> <foo>" is not necessarily
"Foo".  You'd really want to look at the menu-item's name string instead of
capitalizing the symbol-name.
