That wouldn't make much difference, you'd get the menu open on the key release
(instead of key press) while defining another shortcuts using the same

There is no centralized shortcut management in X11, every app is free to grab
keys (including modifiers) and do whatever they want with them, so there is no
real "fix" for this, triggering actions on key press or key release doesn't
change that problem.
