See the issue with vertical menu-bars was mentioned by Jensen Harris during his explanation with the Ribbon UI, the more commands you add the more sliding draws you will have, it would then be easy just to add a scroll bar, making it a VERY cluttered UI.

I was just thinking about that too. But given there would be such exceptional space for the vertical bar (plus a down arrow if necessary. Looking at all the programs I've gone through to see if this problem would come up and it hasn't yet.) I don't feel it would be a difficult problem. And going back to the Ribbon UI, I think if it were a customizable button bar the same way VLC provides for it's user interface it would be a lot less cluttered than the cluttered Ribbon UI.
