Or do you mean there is no obvious way to traverse the menus from the

perhaps like the 1st line of the help menu or something:

  "Use F10 to start traversing menus with kbd"

That is not the standard way to access menus (at least not on w32).

F10 on W32 does start keyboard traversal on menus on Microsoft applications and others, and it is listed here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301583. How more standard does it get? The difference between for example Gnome is that Gnome opens the first menu, but W32 does not.

Maybe it is still good to tell about f10 since most non-Emacs users
are not aware of that.

If they used Gnome or W32 they should be.  Don't know about KDE though.
