The "menu" face.

Yes, it can be customized.  I was able to change the foreground and
background colors of the menu face.  I just rechecked the behavior again
to triple-check myself.

I thought it likely that some faces might not yet be fully customizable.
There are two reasons I reported "a bug" that the color inversion did
not work: 1) was that the fore- and back- menu colors were customizable,
and 2) that color inversion worked for the mode-line face.

Yes, me too.

I am able to customize colors for both the menu and mode-line faces, but
color inversion only works for mode-line.
