This is more of a TODO than a bug. As you said yourself it has always been like this.
It is doable with a hack, using the WM_OT_call_menu operator to call the menu. Not sure if it makes sense though/

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) / @William Reynish (billreynish) what do you say? Should be added to UI papercuts?

Sure, if this can be done in a reasonable way, that sounds good to add.

We'd need to have special support for this kind of button.

This is more a regular todo (applies to 2.7x too)
