No, that's not possible at the moment, and I'm not sure if Unity allows
me to do that. If you file a bug report I'll have a look at it when
I'm working on ClassicMenu Indicator the next time.

For now the only way is to use Alt+F10 and navigate to ClassicMenu
Indicator using the cursor keys.

A workaround may be to use xdotool (not installed by default) to define
a shortcut for the Alt+F10 and cursor keys sequence. For example I can
activate ClassicMenu Indicator using

  xdotool key --delay 150 alt+F10 Right Right

at the command line. You may need another value for "delay" and another
number of "Right" depending on the position of ClassicMenu Indicator.

If you get that working you can go to systems settings and define a
keyboard shortcut for this xdotool command.
