To expand a bit on this point: the key issue is that we can't offer exactly the same API as QToolBar has, for example no setOrientation or setMovable (not a big loss if you ask me). More serious might be that addWidget() becomes harder to support.

Here's a snippet from sample code using the new toolbar class:

    QtMacUnifiedToolBar toolBar;
    toolBar.addAction(QIcon(":/qtlogo.png"), "Hello");
    toolBar.addAction(QIcon(":/qtlogo.png"), "World");

    // add to the customisation list
    toolBar.addAllowedAction(QIcon(":/qtlogo.png"), "Extra Button 1");
    toolBar.addAllowedAction(QIcon(":/qtlogo.png"), "Extra Button 2");
