It's just not the case that everything in Gnome toolbars is in menus as 
well.  And disabled users are often really annoyed that they cannot 
traverse toolbars.  Blind users must take it on faith that the toolbar 
items are duplicated in menus, if they can't traverse them!

I think that this is the wrong thing to do for many reasons.  It also 
breaks some 'exploratory' modes for screen readers.
