OK, this is what I figured. Regarding the latter part, presumably
since the menus and the bindings are dynamic it should be possible to
to update the binding listings in the menus if necessary? Regarding
chaining, I'm not suggesting that they'd really need to be registered
as accelerators through the GTK menuing system, I'm considering them
more as a reference.

Sorry, I wasn't clear, this was an extension of the first question, I
meant key commands when I just said commands.

Thanks for the answers :-)
