comment Organizing hidden commands in a customizable tool bar
Just the ones that are not currently shown, because by clicking on it the user confirms that he understands he's searching for more actions like the ones in the list, but has already checked the ones in the bar. You could also label it «all actions» and show all actions, but I think that would unnecessarily clutter your UI

Concerning your point with the alphabetical sorting, If your app uses groups of commands that somehow belong together everywhere (new and delete), group them, but the inner sorting of the groups should be alphabetical.

If so, I would add a cogwheel / settings button at the right side so the user can directly customize. On the other hand, you say the user already selected the buttons he wants, why is showing more actions with all the buttons he didn't select not good? I think it's much more intuitive than showing them on right click.

comment How best to show the 'weight' (importance) of bullet-ed items in a non-intrusive (creative) way?
@Jay Yes and No. I think the understanding of the user depends hugely on the visual context. If all of the elements on the page are matching in style, and there is a visual concept the user can understand, even complex visualizations can be perceived quite quickly. If there's a 3-D visualization next to html elements on LSD, perceiving any weight difference, however obvious it may be here, can become a difficult task. So all of the suggested solutions can be implemented in a good or a bad way, but I think in the end, this is about inspiration and not about delivering a definite answer.

I added two examples, I think the underlining one is not going to work with your example (if it is 4-8 sentences, you would either have to underline on all lines or under the last line, which would look ugly). The Effect one is just an example, it can be blur, Color stuff or whatever. I think this depends hugely on the style of the rest of the page.
