    Hi, I'm currently in the process of trying to restyle RadMenuItem in the Windows 8 theme.

    The existing control templates have some hardcoded settings which can't be overridden easily - namely, FontSize = 12, FontFamily = Segoe UI Semibold. In order to be able to change these settings, I've had to extract the control templates and modify them to use template bindings, which is pretty heavy considering I only wanted to change these two properties!

    Would it be possible for you to update the default RadMenuItem templates to not hardcode these properties on the ContentPresenter for each RadMenuItem template, and instead use TemplateBindings? This would make it much easier to restyle the items as the settings can be styled on the parent RadMenuItem instead.
