A question about Event.Item

When i saw the example of MenuBar , i observed that we can get the data of the MenuBar clciked using a Event.Item@label .

I am having a question here , please tell me why Flex Framework is designed in such a way that getting data from the Controls is different for different controls .

I mean to ask why is it different in ncase of a MenuBar we have to use Event.item@label .

CXan anybody please tell me why what significance does an Item attribute have in case of a Event ??

Thanks in advance .

I think you can get the answer by reading flex document from adobe, as most control needs a data provider, so in case of MenuBar, you can provide xml as a data provider, from which MenuBar can then be created, Event.Item@label is a way of retrieving the data from the underlying data provider.
