The purpose of that proposal is something different.

That is incorrect. It will just be left up to people filling in the
toolbar to make more guesses about how it should work. It will also
take longer, more mistakes will be made, etc.

I am not a UX person. I emailed this alias because I want to know if
you have something already, or if there are people who want to work on
it, and to point out that anything you make could be implemented in a
few months, and to point out that in a few weeks, an empty prototype
will be ready.
