Oh hell, please, no. :-)

Everything inside the formatting toolbar is accessible via the menu and
its shortcuts, most of them even have an accelerator. That formatting
toolbar never should get focus by tab cycling, IMHO.

While you are typing a mail (let's assume HTML) and want to bold some
part, just use Alt-M S B, or even simpler Ctrl-B. (Well, or use the
mouse, which likely was used anyway to select the part that's going to
be formatted.)

Now imagine the formatting toolbar would be accessible using the Tab
key. That would be like 10 (ten!) times hitting Shift-Tab, then Space to
toglle it, and 10 times hitting Tab to get back to the body. Would
anyone seriously even consider this?
