F10 exists, and the menu bar is displayed by default.  So the menu is
clearly intended to be used by tty users as well.

I don't think this should be necessary.  If the possibility of using
the menu is not apparent enough, we need to think about how to change
that, not how to work around it.

Maybe the text menubar should display at its furthest right (if there
is still room, which should be the case in default modes) <f10> (if
that binding is active at the point of time)?
