I imagine this would turn into a keyword. Keep in mind, however, that you
can build menus for a widget as well. So as long as the theme supports menus
or widgets, menus are usable.

Install? That would install them for all blogs. You can filter the
capabilities system to do this, but I'd only do that if you trust them as if
they are a super admin. They can easily upload a plugin that makes them a
super admin. (It's impossible to sandbox PHP.)

I would be very surprised if existing filters were not enough to do this.
