To choose a menu item by its number is possible by typing
`1', `2', `3', ..., `9'.  But to help the user to select
the right number, every third `*' in the menu is highlighted
with the special face `info-menu-star'.

I wonder if it's possible to use a similar indication for references?

In any case, I think your patch is useful.  If a node begins with the menu
(so there are no references before the menu beginning), menu indications
will help to give the right argument to `Info-next-reference' to arrive
to the reference of the menu item.
