Smeg is another menu editor which seems to have zero documentation.

I see :

... include ... 	system

which seems to match what you are saying, and under Debian,

... include ... 	menudefs.hook

If xfce 4 menu-editor was able to indicate the location of the files 
indicated against "... include ..." it would surely be a large step forward.

Thanks again for your input.
