Bookmarks toolbars are somewhat special because they can be manipulated
outside editing mode. It's not intuitive for example to have to open the
toolbar editor to remove a bookmark from the toolbar.
Even if I'm not convinced the editing of the two types of toolbars
should/will be identical the consistency can be improved and normal
toolbars needs some sort of keyboard bindings/context menus when in edit
mode too.
Though there are no reasons to introduce regressions.
