To implement menu editing, the intent is that a per-user file is
created. The per-user file should specify a <MergeFile> with the
system wide file, so that system changes are inherited. When the user
deletes a menu item, you add
the user adds a menu item, you use
If the user moves a folder you can use <Move> elements to represent the move. <Move> elements used for menu-editing should always be added to the most top-level menu to ensure that moves are performed in the order in which they are specified; moves specified in child menus are always performed before moves specified in a more top level menu regardless of their location in the menu file.
To delete a folder, simply append the <Deleted> element.
When adding a new folder or moving an existing folder, menu editing implementations are advised not to re-use the menu path of a previously deleted folder.
Menu editors probably need to do some kind of consolidation/compression to avoid an XML tree that grows infinitely over time.
