What is the problem with that ? That lets the user to choose the most
convenient way for her.

I think it is not a good idea because with a single place where to look
for commands you are sure that an important part of the users will not
be able to find these commands easily. On the contrary, if you design
several ways to access to the commands, then you multiply the chances
for each user to find them and to memorize where they are in order to
find them quicker next time.

My proposition is to transform the sidebar into a container in which the
user can dock the toolbars she want. The idea is to increase the
versatility of the UI so that the user could configure the UI in the
best way for her.

Best regards.
