Q: how to display menu accelerators

Currently we display  menu accelerators (that is, keyboard modifiers one needs to press in order to invoke menu command via keystroke) as "Control", "Alt" and "Meta" text strings. This is obviously not right. However, I'm not sure what is the correct solution here: Apple has these funky symbols that stand for Control, Option and Command, yet they seem to be absent on the most modern Apple keyboards. For example, on my MBP keyboard only Command key has a corresponding symbol above "Command" string. So, what should JDK display: symbols, or just plain "Control", "Option" and "Command"?
