The "System Icons" section has the five contexts we know now, "Actions", 
"Applications", "Devices", "Filesystems" and "Mimetypes" (though I would like 
to rename the last two to "Folders and Drives" and "File Types" or something 
like that).
The section "Application Icons" is available depending on whether the calling 
applications enabled it. The application is then free to define the contexts 
it likes.
The "Custom Icons" has no contexts, but has an option where you can browse for 

Adding contexts to the toolbar could be possible, but if you have to represent 
the contexts with icons, I don't think it's as clear what they're about. 
Especially when applications start adding their own.
