Text editing for toolbar buttons would certainly be a good thing in some cases 
(I primarily think of extra-long gems like "Gwenview Image Browser View"),
but I don't think it should be incorporated. It would only be a minor 
advantage if the action names are short enough and to-the-point while 
renaming abilities make it more difficult to switch between different KDE 
installations and create some kind of KDE-wide standard.

In my opinion, the most annoying drawback in Konqueror's toolbar configuration 
are the ActionLists which is not split up into single, readdable buttons.
