Yes, but menu accelerators doesn't seem to work by default in XEmacs
[undex unix].  IMHO the F should only be underlined if it is possible to
press Alt-F to open the File menu.  Having a underlined F in the menu and
Alt-F doing something different (as in XEmacs) is worse than not having a
underlined F or menu accelerators at all (as in Emacs) IMHO.

Using M-S-f to open the File menu seems like a bad idea, as it is a step
=away= from modern UI behaviour.
