I'm not necessarily opposed to such a feature, but:
- By principle, we do not like to install features that only work on
  proprietary systems.  So, you'd have to at least make it work with the
  GNUstep or Gtk menus.
- Maybe a simpler strategy (easier to make it work on all systems) would
  be to provide shorthands.  I.e. have some clever Elisp bit rewrite the
  menu-bar entries according to some alist of shorthands.
