Yes. Not everything will be style capable in the first release. But keep in mind that ToolButton is pretty much simply  a custom styled Button, so there is not much point in exposing it when you can simply use a custom styled Button instead. 
The ToolBarStyle and StatusBarStyle is also currently not needed in the public API since you can anyway use a custom QML item in their place.
