FWIW I doubt it'd be very useful: the whole point of using CUA is so
that users can use the bindings they already know.  The key here being
"they already know", so placing those bindings in the menu is
not necessary.


PS: I could even construe the current behavior as a feature to "teach
them the real bindings instead", although I think it's more of an
accident than anything.
