no, not as such.
keybinds are defined seperately (rc.xml) from menu entries (menu.xml), 
so it is very well possible to have a hotkey for something that doesn't 
have a menu entry.

of course i cannot speak for the devs, but i'll just go out on a limb 
and answer that one too:

i do recommend to get more familiar with openbox's abilities:
http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Contents (at least "configuration", 
"themes" and "menus". "cool programs" is largely outdated.)
