Very nice !
Would it be hard to combine different icon sizes and/or use drop-down button (eg. boolean in Part) :
  • To highlight some important tools and have some less important/used but related tool close to it
  • To manage the tab width to a size suited for common screens without scrolling.
I blog about HVAC / BIM / Energy : pythoncvc.net. If you like you can follow the RSS feed.

The first thing is have a functional menu. I will look at other ideas later.

Github link added.

Warning: Works for FreeCAD 0.19.20406 or higher. It's still under development. So there must be bugs.

This is quite tricky because those are supposed to be cross-workbench tool.
What i'd like, but I dont' know if it is feasible (and I don't want you to implement it, just putting wishes down for inspiration):
Move File Toolbar in a fixed position, where it doesn't occupy much space.
Integrate the Structure toolbar into TreeView panel.
The View Toolbar have view commands, but also it is used to set some preferences. I'd like preferences to go into the statusbar and view commands to be overlayed the 3d view. Maybe in the upper left corner (maybe integrated in the view cube).
No ideas for Macro Toolbar.

I stated them just to be precise, not to be imperative :)

I removed them from all workbenhes. for now they are just accessable from command menues :) Maybe I don't create a tab for them.
