Allow selecting menu items with keyboard in ribbon drop menus

When you open up for example the filter list with keyboard pressing ctrl once, then H for Home and F,T for Filter, it would only be reasonable to allow the user to select a menu item by typing the first letters of its title (e.g. "cho" for Chord symbols or "rehe" for rehearsal marks). It bugs me that some of the functions in the ribbon are completely accessible without the arrow keys but all the dropdown menus lack this functionality. Think text styles for an example. What's the shortest way to create a small boxed system text object? Via the search box, and it's far from optimal for the task!
