As I mentioned, I think these are sane and should be added.

I've heard many people say the ideal situation would be to bind just the 
Super key to the menu, but unfortunately this is not possible tecnically 
(at least at the moment). This leads us to the question: do we add the 
Super+Space combo just to have "something" to open the menu and end up 
with a suboptimal combo – potentially leading to frustration?
