AFAIK, no one else is working on this, so go for it if you have time.
You'll want to head over to freedesktop.org and read the menu
specification.  You'll also want to look at the desktop entry spec and
basedir spec (and possibly others?), as the menu spec references those.

You should also look at the STATUS file in libxfce4menu's source tree.
Ideally you should avoid using menu spec features that libxfce4menu
doesn't implement yet.  (It may or may not be possible to do this while
also creating an actually-useful menu editor, though.)
