The general take has been that ARIA menus should be used for
application-like menus in web applications, not for general navigation
(for a chicken-egg rationale that most keyboard users will still
think/expect that they can move from a link to the next using TAB,
rather than having to navigate like in a native application).

See also https://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/menus/ which distinguishes the
practice for "fly-out menus" and "application menus".
