I am using the "show early, finish loading later" trick. I have fixed
the issue now.

I am going to ask on #kde-usability before committing, already
implemented on my localhost however. I have no objections to this.

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to hide individual elements of
toolbar, other than remove them, which will break the ordering of
toolbar items. Removing them also happens to delete them, meaning I
would have to rebuild all the toolbars when the view wanted to change
a single toolbar item.

If it is possible, then I can't see it. As a result I introduced
multiple toolbars.

I think I have fixed it now.
