Yes, i've been thinking about the menu issue on my way to the job.I suppose 
the keyboard module(...to name it) is loaded in the initrd image..I guess 
the menu in linuxrc needs the keyboard module loaded, and that module is the 
one used by the softkeys, which map to characters.
Anyway, as you proposed, it can else be done using a small reboot-script 
that should store the booting preferences in a file, to be read from the 
linuxrc file after the boot.
Hmm..i think that maybe even more options that flasher sets, can be done in 
this way too...usb host mode, etc...
