"Match exactly" is not a worthy goal, IMO, (even if possible, which I
doubt), because the menu items cannot be as long as the doc string,
and the doc string is typically long, as it should include enough
details to explain itself completely.  However, I made changes (on the
emacs-26 branch) that I believe make the menus for those two variables
match their doc strings much closer.

I don't think we have such users on board, but if there are concrete
practical suggestions for further improvement, they are welcome.

Thanks.
