Ah, yes, that sounds like a very intuitive interface, and I don't think
adding something like that to transient.el would be hard.

I was surprised, too, that `C-g' was the interface here to go "up" in
the menu hierarchy, but then I got used to it very quickly -- and I
discovered it naturally while using it.  So while it's an innovation, it
feels natural.  (And I guess the experience from Magit shows that people
like it.)
