The idea here isn't to put every toolbar item in the focus chain, only
the toolbar container.  Once the toolbar container receives focus you
can use the arrow keys to navigate through it.

So this would only add one item to the focus chain 'per se'.  I agree
that doing it the other way (i.e. every toolbar item is in the focus
chain) would be burdensome.
