Is Drag-and-Drop on a Menu Item Possible?

Question:
Is drag-and-drop on a menu item possible?

Answer:
If I was going to be rhetorical, I'd answer in very Zen-like terms: "Anything is possible." But in more practical terms, no, it's not possible to drag-and-drop on a menu item.

Here's why: If you want to drag an item onto a menu, you have to click on the menu to drop it down, or if it's a pop-up, you have to display it. Then, you have to get the item that you want to drag from some source, which in turn requires another click of some sort. By virtue of a menu's natural response to clicks outside of itself, the menu would disappear as soon as you clicked on the source.
