The fact that Drupal 5 supports dynamic menu items (menu items that  
are conditionally generated) makes it difficult/dangerous to do  
dynamic HTML menus.  If I'm not mistaken, that is already taken care  
of by the new menu system in Drupal 6.  That should be good news for  
the people that want "responsive menus".

Is DHTML menu items something core could support better?  We're  
working on the menu system now, so feedback and/or patches from the  
various menu module maintainers, and theme designers, would be  
welcome.  I'd love to find out, how we can make it easier to make and  
support "complex menus".
