If that's tht goal (and I'm all for it), the key of a PC keyboard
labeled "Alt" pressed in combination with the underlined menu letter
must display the menu.

That's a no win situation.

Okay, you say "by default".  Since new users don't know nothing about
forward-word = M-f, you will not hurt them.  I'd appreciate a
configuration option saying "use Alt plus underlined letter to activate
a menu or a menue entry".  Old users can set the option to "M-S".
