Basically, I want to re-use the same menu contributions at multiple places. I have a set of commands which will make up as either popup menu (in any view or dialog) or in the main menu. Is there any way to define a group for these set of commands, and whenever I want to define the menu, I can just reference the command group instead of referencing all the commands individually ?
If I have to change the order of menu items at once place, then I have to change the order of referenced commands at all the places where it has been used either as popup, view menu or main menu. Instead if there is something like command groups, we just need to change in the group.

A submenu could be shared in a menubar menu and a view menu. In that you could add the submenu in the 2 places, but have another menu contribution to the submenu that contained your commands.

But because they're in a different scheme (menu vs popup) you would be able to use that trick with the main menu/view menu and a popup menu.
