How else would you indicate what is the accelerator letter?

Given the size of the set of possible actions at a given menu level, I
can't think how you could possibly invent something more efficient
(beyond assigning shortcut keys to everything). And that is impractical
for dynamic menus.
I don't use accelerators /often/, but when I do I find them to be
extremely helpful. Generally they are most useful for an action that you
do frequently, or that you need to do many times on a single occasion.
