Support dynamic content in Add-in commands ribbon dropdown menu

It would be very useful if add-ins dropdown menu could contain dynamically generated items. Now the displayed content in the ribbon dropdown need to be hardcoded even for sub-menus which limit the capabilities of add-ins commands.

        With dynamically generated dropdown it would be beneficial to have stated buttons (push button); Currently command buttons are limited to run actions only and if there is no visual indication user don't know if action succeeded or not.
        If push buttons will be difficult to implement and dynamic menu you would consider, there will be work around to indicate "state" of the command button by dynamically display "turn on" and "turn off" menu items, which replicate state.

        In general making the entry points dynamic, both ribbon buttons and right-click menus would be very useful.
