To be consistent with modern desktop systems, I believe that the shortcut keys in the F9 dropdown menu should be aligned to the right. E.g. instad of this

External panelize             C-x !
Show directory sizes          C-Space

we should have this

External panelize               C-x !
Show directory sizes          C-Space

Are you kidding? It should be aligned at modifier key (C- M- Fx), exactly as it is now. Your 'modern desktop systems' are simply badly written, my IceWM aligns the same way as mc.

it's arbitrary.
qt (with the style i use, anyway) does indeed left-align like mc does.
otoh, openoffice, firefox, chromium, and audacity (most of these are gtk-based) do right-align.
i don't consider either one clearly better in looks or usability.

what is noteworthy for me is that i never even noticed this difference until you made me look for it. and i'm fairly picky about such things. so personally i'd instantly close this as WHOCARES.

I'm okay with closing this as invalid. Sorry for wasting your time :)
