Well, yes, but that is not necessarily an option.

For toolbars native to LO, such as the Track Changes toolbar, it may be seen as
reasonable to expect this to be implemented. It will still require that all
such extra functions are incorporated in the Notebookbar. In that case, each
such missing functionality in Notebookbar should be registered as a bug, right?

But third-party software exists that adds functionality to LO through adding
toolbars. An example is the (free) reference software Zotero, which was part of
my example in comment 1. It took me quite some time to realize that Zotero
could still be used even though it does not incorporate itself in the
Notebookbar. Given that LO has changed, not the third-party software (Zotero in
this example), it seems fair to put the burden of the change on LO, not on the
third-party software.

For both native LO functionality and third-party additions, it seems to be case
of a single change (making Notebookbar continue to show toolbars not
implemented in the bar) versus changing each of the individual cases. Am I
overlooking anything in that statement?

I have taken the liberty to change the bug status to REOPENED (rather than
RESOLVED - NOTABUG). If anybody disagrees in my arguments above for continuing
to consider this a bug, please argue again why it is not a bug.
