I think it'd be useful if the menu files could also include things like
different window managers (and maybe fvwm modules?). So a window manager
could build up a list of other available window managers that could be
switched to.

I suggest that this be done by adding some new values to the first field
of the menu file, so it can be:

X11 -- program needs x
text -- text mode program
svga -- program requires svga; must be run at the linux console
wm -- this program is a window manager 
fvmwmodule -- this is version 1 fvwm module
fvwm2module -- this is a version 2 fvwm module
