Remove add-in tab

I'm in the process of migrating an Access 2003 database to Access 2007 and yes you guessed it, the database has custum menus that the customer wants to be displayed in the same manner i.e. Doesn't want them displayed under the Add-in tab.  Basically I want to remove the neccesity for the use to access the custom menu without having to first click the Add-Ins tool bar.  I'm getting to the conclusion that it cannot be done unless a third party software package is used.
<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">
	<ribbon startFromScratch ="true">
			<tab id ="tabFile" label ="File">
				<group id ="grpFile">
					<menu id ="mnu1">
					<button id ="btnClose" label="Close"/>
					<button id ="btnCloseDatabase" label="Close Database"/>
					<menuSeparator id ="mnuSep1"/>	
					<button id ="btnPageSetup" label="Page Setup"/>
					<button id ="btnPrintPreview" label="Print Preview"/>
					<button id ="btnPrint" label="Print"/>
					<menuSeparator id ="mnuSep2"/>
					<button id ="btnExitAccess" label="Exit Access"/>
	</ribbon >

Shame on Microsoft for NOT having a backward compatibility - A2007 (menus) >> A2003.  AFAIC - the A2007 ribbons are a total disaster !

I agree.  I've checked Addintools.com and I can't understand why Microsoft couldn't come up with a product like that and include it as an option for Access and the other office line
