I'm fine with simplification of the default toolbars, but the tools
should exist to be re-added by the user for customization.

Reason: when you have a specific workflow, making a custom toolbar with
the 5 buttons you need is much faster than digging through menus and
context menus.

In fact I tend to subscribe to the idea that all sensible functions
should be available to be added to a toolbar (there may be some
functions which just don't make any sense on the toolbar)
Without such customization a user would need to create custom plugins or
scripts for seemingly simple functions.
