Sure. Tabs are a very common UI paradigm, that's why they make sense. When the 
user sees tabs, he knows what they're most probably going to do.

On the other hand, toolbar buttons that switch between completely different 
states and contents of the whole UI are _not_ a common UI paradigm.

Of course we should minize the WTF effect. That's basically what all this is 
about. ;-)
