Support for providing a drop down button with a set of actions in the 
custom toolbar was recorded on our Jira to be fixed in version 9.1. We 
just discussed about that in a meeting a few minuets ago and we decided 
to implement that support for the 9.0 release.
When the custom toolbar for a document type is defined it will be 
possible to add an "action group" and then place actions inside that 
action group. The "action group" will have a name and an icon and it 
will be presented with the icon plus a drop down arrow or, if no icon is 
specified, with the name and a drop down arrow.
Once we have this ready we will consider also some updated on the 
default customization for DocBook to take advantage of this support.
