No. I felt bad because anything in
menu-bar -> options -> mule -> list-charset-chars
will just show you the emacs internal codes.
Therefore I want an additional tree:
menu-bar -> options -> mule -> list-charset-chars-with-their-native-codes
or something like that, because:
1. don't most folks want to see a list with the native codes and not
emacs special codes?  But the menu just has the latter and not the
former.
2. Isn't it weird that M-x list-charset-chars will show you native
codes whereas the menu item of the same name shows you emacs codes?
Oh, the menu item is in fact "List Character Sets", but sounds close
enough, and there is no alternative on the menu to get you native
codes.

By the way, I suppose your subtrees idea isn't bad, but remember to
take care of the bigger problem first.
