unhelpful menu keybinding notes

In the GTK version of emacs, the keybinding notes for the "Edit > Cut"
and "Edit > Copy" menu entries say "<cut>" and "<copy>" respectively.

Those names don't seem very useful to me, as most keyboards don't have
such keys; also they don't help teach the real Emacs bindings.
Shouldn't those just say "C-w" and "M-w" ?

 that in the end its factories produced not goods but bads: finished products
 less valuable than the raw materials they were made from.'  [The Economist]
