I also, not infrequently, improve formatting (e.g. wrapping output in
{noformat} or code in {code}) and fix typos where I believe this will
make it easier for (me and) others to read.  However, I have also on
occasion accidentally clicked the edit pen when I meant to write a new
comment, with problematic consequences (I think I put it back the way
it was, once I noticed ... but what if I did this and failed to notice ?)

Putting it in a menu would also reduce the foot-gun risk.
And yes, the old icons were less intrusive, but I can live with the
buttons (although the fact that they're buttons close to the "Add
comment" one might increase the foot-gun risk.)
