The problem with this proposition is that — as you say yourself — these are adapted to your own workflow. I'm sure we can find dozens of workflows where people would say they want this or that option at the top of the dock. And in the end, we won't be able to find a consensus.

Moreover there is also the force of habits. This is not a good reason to not change things, don't misunderstand, but it becomes one if there is no good reason to change them (like absence of consensus), especially when the proposition is to change so much.

I feel that the right proposition would not be a reorder, but rather either update the GUI for everyone to create one own's order, or a completely different GUI if anyone had a great proposition some day for a better tool option's GUI.

Now I may be wrong.
But I just really feel this proposal is too closely related to your personal workflow.

I wonder how much of this really stems from the crowded Tool options dialog, which make all of us want our favorite settings in the top third/quarter. When these settings show up on the canvas, space will no longer be a problem.

Also let's not overcustomize things. This also has its drawbacks, because you can no longer explain things to other people (or understand their explanations if you are at the other end) because your respective UIs have become too different.
