It's just that this environment variable is used by a few applications: shell, panel and menu-editors.
I guess that most of them are designed for GNOME and then will also check if 'gnome-applications.menu' file is also available (alacarte does that but maybe not all of them: http://codesearch.debian.net/search?q=XDG_MENU_PREFIX ).

But on the other hand if you'll fix this soon, it's maybe not a problem to not have the applications menu or to edit it, it should impact a lot of people, it was just to prevent this problem ;)
