Currently in Tabbed interface LibreOffice has Extension Tab which would be used for any extension that supports the tabbed interface. The issue is with no tabbed interface supporting extension installed the Extension Tab become empty. This is clearly a waste of precious space.
Step to reproduce:
1. Enable tabbed interface in any module (View > User Interface > Tabbed)
These are my suggestions:
1. Remove the Extension Tab completely or make it hidden if no any extension that supports tabbed interface installed. Here I propose two solutions:
a) Show the Extension Tab if there is any extension that support the tabbed interface installed. So this tab would be a pool for all particular installed extension. Every extension has its own dedicated space and being separated with other extension by a vertical separator line
b) Remove the Extension Tab completely and replace it by the name of particular installed extension. So here every extension has its own dedicated tab.
2. Move the "Extension Manager..." to Tools tab.

I'm for 1.a
Hide extension tab and make it visible if an extension with notebookbar commands was added. Each extension was separated by an vertical separator.
For each extension a separate tab would be waste of space cause most extension have 1-5 commands.

How if the Extension tab have four to eight installed extensions with standard screen resolution? It would be too long. AFAIK, Ms Word use 1b approach.
1a is the quick and easy solution. Ideally the extension designer can decide whether her content goes into the standard tab or add new sections.
