[Interest] Quick Controls Menu questions

I'm planning a Quick2-based application that will run on an embedded 
Linux device (similar to Raspberry PI) where the application is the only 
user of the framebuffer (no X11). The application will be controlled by 
keyboard cursor keys only. I have been doing some mockups on the desktop 
with the Quick Controls Menu items, but there seems to be some limitations:

- Is it possible to do complete styling of the Menu? There is some 
things in the source code it seems, but it's not documented. Maybe more 
features are planned in Qt 5.2?
- Will the menu be drawn as a Item in the Quick2 scene on embedded Linux 
instead of using the window system's menu (like it does on Windows?).
- Is keyboard navigation possible with the Menu? I can't seem to get it 
working on Windows, it will only follow the mouse.
- Is there a way to set the position when using the popup() function? 
(as there is no mouse)
- Is it possible to mix Widget-based menus on top of a Quick2 window 
using QtWayland? If so I can create the menus with QMenu instead.
