I spent a lot of time trying to get this to work but I had to give up. I
plan to retry though. Btw do you think drawing a line in the place where
the item will be inserted would be a decent fallback solution ?
Right now I'm just using the standard gtk behavior, the button over you
are moving it's highlighted, but it's really unclear where the icon will
be inserted this way I think.

Here we goes a bit better. There are still a few not generic minor
details (like the configuration file path) but they should be easy to
solve. The editor is just a ~1000 lines GObject, should not be hard to
reuse in other applications.
