As for using Super as something other than a modifier, that has its own
problems. IceWM allows it, but that breaks keybindings external to IceWM
because modifiers aren't really intended to be used on their own as
(As far as I can guess, IceWM does it by using XGrabKey and then setting
up its keybinding system so that the KeyRelease event for Super triggers
the menu unless a Super+Something keybinding set a "suppress next
release binding" flag)
I just use something like Super+Space. Though, since I almost never use
the menu, I have Super+Space bound to gmrun. (An alternative to
LXPanel's run dialog with Tab completion and history support)

That's a good solution, and easy to remember. CrunchBang uses this for the
Openbox menu. It also has all the keyboard shortcuts including this one
listed on the desktop, using Conky. (This, along with a good README and a
welcome script, makes life easier for someone new to the distro, and these
should all be more common in Linux distros IMO.)
