Just FYI, it does already wrap in my browser - and that's in English ...

Yep. Also, I found that with the long list of options you tend to go
diagonally (from "Core" to something far out right). And then the
dropline tends to close. You have to be careful to go down into the
dropline first and then to the right.

So I have to say while this initially looked like a good solution, it
does display a few usability issues after a while.

I think we should focus on logical groups first, then see how many that
turn out to be, and only then think about restricting the number of entries.
