Bug Description

What is currently called "Head Up Display" in Unity is not related to "Display", but indeed is a bar for searching the menus.
This makes harder the use/comprehension of Unity from new users.

For better comprehension, it could be renamed to something closer to its real functionality, like:
- "Menu quick search",
- or "Menu search bar",
- or "Menu accelerator"...

Indeed, it does not seem to be an appropriate use of the "HUD" term...
Even if the menu appears over the all display, it does not mean that we have the "head up looking at horizon" (It still happens on a screen, through wich we can't see the horizon! ;o).
So, what about something like:
- Screen Up Menu
- Screen Up Display
- ...

Why is it "incomplete" ?
