Direct read of menu_data.js in browser security risk???

If I 'view source' to my page, I see that there are some .js files in the root directory. So it I then type my site ( in my browser, I instantly see all of the menu code.

Is that a big security concern? Is there a way to put the .js files in a folder and somehow deny access to that directory?

Whay would it be a security concern? It's just a text file that contains menu info that is ultimately seen on your site anyway. Further, any file or graphic that shows the URL in your source can be seen in the same way (unless you locked the directory).
