I think that only the menu/menuitems are the model, but there are two
views on the menu model: (1) the text-mode menu and (2) the graphical
menu.  The GUI component model is fairly limited at this point but
there's no reason it couldn't be expanded to a wider variety of widgets
that might support MVC (for instance a text area that uses a model
separate from its view).
