Component class "TActionManager" does not support inheritance and cannot be added to a module that has descendents. Why?
Steps to Reproduce:

It's the limitation of the component.
It has some parts it can't compare to ancestor, so it's flagged as non inheritable.
Some other components have this limitation too.

The knock-on effects of this are bad!
Since the Ribbon interface uses TActionManager This pretty much kills any chance to have a ribbon inherited as well.
I hope in Delphi XE2 we get:
* Updated 2010 Ribbon
* the Ribbon uses either a "fixed for form inheritance" TActionManager or a completely new mechanism.
