We would like to turn this feature off for our user community as it would become a support nightmare to allow them to customize their ribbons, however we want them to be able to customize their Quick Access Toolbar?

    I don't think you can disable the Customization ribbon, but you can hide it and probable configure the template. When a client open the document it is already hidden.  Try this link

    I hope this helps
