We already have that: it's called the tool bar.  Of course, if you use
a GTK or NS build, your Emacs is challenged, since the tool-bar
display is delegated to the toolkit.

Anyway, the way the tool bar is implemented in Emacs suggests the
implementation of the requested feature: a special window that
displays the contents of a Lisp string (which then could have other
display elements by way of display and other text properties).

Volunteers welcome.
