As we all should know, the Ribbon is being removed in Dynamics CRM2011 and replaced with the 'Command Bar':
However, the Command Bar is still customised using RibbonDiffXml and the Ribbon is still there on a few system forms and in the current version of Microsoft Outlook's list views.
So the question is...What should we call the Tool?

Personally - I'm leaning towards sticking with Ribbon Workbench.Have your say!
Command Bar Workbench doesn't really roll off the tongue like Ribbon Workbench does :)
Seeing as the RibbonDiffXml is still intact and the Ribbon appears in the majority of the non-end user entities, yet the nomenclature for the front-end UX is called the Command Bar (which is how we'll refer to it when talking to our customers, we should have a 3rd option called the "Rimmand Bar".
Since both presentation forms are included in CRM 2013, I would also include both variants in your tool and would give it a neutral name like "Menu Workbench for Dynamics CRM 2013".
Thank you to those of you that voted on this – it was almost equal between the two, so I've decided to stick with Ribbon Workbench for the following reasons:
So until we have CommandBar Xml in a future version of Dynamics CRM – it’ll always be the Ribbon ‘XML’ Workbench with a *silent* ‘XML’!
The Ribbon Workbench for Dynamics CRM 2013 beta will be available for download very soon:
