I don't think I have an answer for that, but I (and to be sure, other people) am curious why you want
to do this The end effect is that it would either:
- not get noticed by technically illiterate people (Years at this, and I am still amazed at how some people do not *see* various UI hints we devs give them.)
- look very strange and non-standard to casual users
- look like a violation of a user interface guidelines/best practices to advanced users (who could, granted, deal with it, but who would still be irritated by it)
If you are wanting to group related items and set them apart, visually, from other items, then this sort of thing is usually done in a second-level menu that "flies out" from the first-level menu.
