I think they use A-<letter> to pop down the menu whose
first letter is <letter> and then the same kind of thing to select
entries inside menus (and probably A-next and A-prior to select by
moving line-by-line).
I believe it was chosen because it's what Motif and W32 interfaces
provide (and I expect GTK to offer similar things).  It has the
disadvantage of relying on the presence of an Alt key which is not
already used as a Meta key.

This all comes from my very fuzzy memory, so I'm sure it's good
several "inaccuracies".
