Exactly and that's why the toolbox is special. It holds the tool
buttons, it decides what tool is active, it has the most important
menu and for that reason it also creates images when things are
dropped there.

You missed the important fact that the menu cannot be removed and that
we don't intent to change this. Face it, as it stands, the toolbox is
special. I really don't understand why you are questioning this. It's
a fact.
