Wish: dead parent links to adhere to Windows menu convention

Here's another suggestion to add to the Wish List:

Allow a parent menu item to be ''dead''

Standard Windows menu behavior is for a parent 'flyout' item -- an item that has children directly underneath it -- to NOT be any sort of link. Hover over it and you get no link behavior at all. This is a fairly well-established convention that either

a) isn't currently present or

b) I'm not smart enough to figure out how to implement ;D

A good example of this is the IE File/New menu item. New itself is not a link, and clicking on it does nothing.
