I don't think you typically would switch from a toolbar to a context menu
dynamically, but the two are semantically more or less identical and so it
doesn't make sense for them to use different markup. You _are_ likely to use
very similar commands in both; having different markup for one than the other
arbitrarily makes this harder to do.

The <command> vs <menuitem> discussion isn't about fallback, though certainly
other parts of the feature are designed to use fallback and I think that's a
good thing  even if some authors go out of their way to do fallback themselves
with sniffing, it's still good for their to be some sort of "automatic"
fallback for cases where the author didn't bother.

In conclusion, I really see no value in a <menuitem> element here.
