this is completely implemented in ArcGIS Pro!
Ribbon interface is not a good idea. Too late though.
I couldn't agree more. Ribbons = less productivity through more clicks, just so it "looks cool". I haven't met one full time GIS professional who likes ribbons.
Not a fan of the ribbon at all. With Arc I could dock my edit tool bar, label tool bar, etc, to a different monitor, and heavily customize each.
