I'm not sure what type of menus you are talking about. Are you talking 
about combo boxes or navigation menus like you see on most websites 
done in Flash or DHTML?

It depends. I have coded a few UI widgets, like combo boxes and 
buttons, that can be scaled using SVG transforms without disrupting the 
functionality. I usually code these up using RCC and should be able to 
do it just the same with sXBL.
