That "left-leaves-the menu-no-matter-how-deep-you-are" behaviour is something
that has annoyed me in rockbox for a long time (not enough for me to
try to fix it
of course ;)) and i would like some kind of decision as it's also inconsistent.

I would prefer if left goes "up one level" so it brings you back to
the previous menu,
or exits if you are in the top level menu.
