[Limitation] Windows 7 ribbon Framework doesn't support *merging* of compiled Ribbon XML resources.

Related to my earlier postings (e.g. http://windowsribbon.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=207513), it is possible to load to Ribbon objects and merge them?  Is there a builtin method (in the Framework or the Windows 7 ribbon control) for any type of merging of Ribbon objects?

Scenario: Ribbon A has groups A1, A2 and A3.  Ribbon B has A1, A2, B2 and B3.   merge(Ribbon A, Ribbon B) has groups A1, A2, A3, B2, B3.  ...that is, merging at the integroup group level.  Merging of commands within 2 groups with the same name would be nice to have.

There is no way of merging two Ribbon XML resources.
