What about defining "transform rules" or "how should/must this action look
like in some environment". A menubar could transform into what you suggest
but could also transform into a palette or perhaps something even more alien.

This is quite simple to do and will form a basis for how to drag out of a
menu and into a toolbar for example.

Now, there are items in a menu that don't form obvious toolbar icons what
about them? I don't know.. Any ideas?
