The menu is named "Window" not just because all applications have a  
"Window" menu, but also because there are items relating to the  
selected Emacs window found - 'Select next tab" for instance, or  
"Split Window".

I agree that it's less than ideal, given that there is also a list of  
buffers (which are shown in a window when selected), and there is a  
submenu with all frames.

Changing terminology completely in Aquamacs (frame->window, window- 
 >pane, buffer->document, key binding -> shortcut) is not a feasible
