Add-In: Create a menu shown initially, containing tools

using an add-in I created a toolbar and menu for ArcMap.

A toolbar has the attribute showInitially="true". So the toolbar is shown at startup, the user doesn't need to add it manually. Is there sth. similar for menus to show at startup?

When adding items to the menu, the wizard only provides button elements but no tools. Is there any way, to get tools into a menu? I'm thinking of menu items which could be checked and unchecked (like in View/Status Bar).
