Menu items get deleted with the user who created them

Say a user edits a nav menu or two, adding some menu items. Then, said user gets deleted. Rut roh:
SELECT ID FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_author = %d
The menu items were tied to them, therefore they are deleted.
We need to ensure that wp_delete_user() doesn't touch nav menu items.
This has repercussions for any post type that doesn't care about authors. Tempted to actually check, post_type_supports(), which is typically reserved for UI-level actions. Otherwise, post_author always gets stored, and that seems to be just a bit of a problem. (It could be argued this is a UI-level check, in terms of confirming things to delete.)
Unsure how this didn't come up previously. Reported by flashingcursor over Twitter.
