Like I've told everyone here, once you go contextual ribbon panel for day to day basic AutoCAD functions, it's incredibly harder and less efficient to go back.
You have an example of "contextual ribbon panel" ? I'm always looking for faster ways to do things.

The most common ones here are;
1) A hatch entity is selected
2) An mtext entity is double clicked into.

REFEDIT is a really simple example.  Old school it would pop up a tool bar with buttons for save, discard, add, and remove while the command is active.  Ribbon panel basically does the same thing, but you're not hunting for that elusive 4-button floating toolbar on an HD widescreen monitor.

The new semi-intelligent ARRAY might be a better example.  Select an array, change a few numbers in the boxes... much like Hatch selection.

Raster design tools are another good example.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

try {GreatPower;}
   catch (notResponsible)
      {NextTime(PlanAhead);}
   finally
      {MasterBasics;}

Are you wanting an example of creating your own?
