A Mac-implemented context menu with two items, both of which have control-key shortcuts

Also seeing shortcuts in the context menus for the tab strip and the omnibox.
I suppose that dropping shortcuts in the Views-based menus would be the quickest way to fix this.

Those are Cocoa menus, though. The Views menus should retain their accelerators since they are used for the app menu.
Absolutely. On the Mac, the context menus (no matter if implemented via Cocoa or Views menus) should have no shortcuts.
Actually I'm not sure I was agreeing with you in comment 3. What I think is that on the Mac and on the Mac only, no matter what implementation of menus, context menus should not have shortcuts. It's not an issue of Cocoa vs Views menus, but of context vs non-context menus.

Never show shortcuts in contextual menus on the Mac.

This is platform convention.
