Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear.
Is there any reason we are not using hover (suckerfish) menus on the
primary menus as well as an always visible secondary menu which is
context sensitive?

The short answer is: the styling of the menu didn't please/there
wasn't enough time to refine it.
Ivan/David thought it would be too confusing if a menu popped up when
hovering over the entries, as you got a
* permanently visible top-navigation
* permanently visible sub-navigation of the current item.

If you'd then add a hover-menu that is too similar in style, this kind
of looks weired and confusing. It would have been better with an
easing effect or similar, or with a better css styling of the menu.

But of course it can be added given someone provides a styling
everybody is happy with :-)

While we're free to choose how the html-markup of the menu is
generated, I'd prefer semantic HTML and thus a nested UL (as it is
already done with the sidebar navigation menu)

 <li>menu 1
 <li>menu2</li> <!-- no subitems -->
