F10 is another older standard for accessing the menubar which works on
many programs on many platforms, including Emacs, and has the
advantage of not being interfered with by "sticky keys".

After enabling sticky keys, I have to tap the Alt key two times to
get to the menubar in any application, not just Emacs. So this seems
to be a limitation of sticky keys, not of Emacs.
