  But if no such "menu bar" exists, then the Theme isn't required to use/support wp_nav_menu(), right?

    They must use wp_nav_menu()

    If wp_nav_menu() is being used, then the register_nav_menus() OR add_theme_support('menus');  needs to be there

    Basically if they have an existing menubar on their site, wp_nav_menu needs to be used.

      Can someone give me some clarification on how we're currently interpreting the requirement that Themes support Nav Menus? 

      If a given Theme doesn't have a "menu bar", is it not required to define a Nav Menu? i.e. in such case, is the Theme acceptable with just the native support for adding Nav Menus in the Theme's dynamic sidebar?

      Or, are we requiring Themes to support a menu bar, with a pre-defined Nav Menu?

      Thanks in advance,
