In Machine menu, keyboard shortcuts should not indicate "Host", but its value

In the Machine menu of a virtual machine, keyboard shortcuts indicate "Host" for the modifier key. This can be confusing for the new user who doesn't know what is the host key. The value of the host key should appear instead of the word "Host" Example : the menu : "Fullscreen Host+F" should be (if Host is F12) : "Fullscreen F12+F"

Yes, perhaps, but the host key could be quite long, for example Right WinKey. And in future it might be even longer if we allow key combinations (many people would appreciate that). The longer the string the longer the menu items and the wider the menus ...
