If all Haiku toolbars followed a similar example, I don't think
there would be much need for tool-tips in most applications.
And most importantly of all, it would discourage making unclear
toolbars with obscure text-less icons!

That's an honourable goal, I'm all for it.
There are, of course, other apps that have to deal with many icons, which consequently have to be quite small (16x16 - 32x32). Think about a graphics editor. So, tool-tips are sometimes a necessary evil.
