When you shrink the wide of the window it would be awesome when you can define in glade that the button layout to switch from icon + label layout to icon view something like priority-. Maybe view-

This is a feature available in the MS Ribbon and would be useful if there was a means to implement it.

Sounds nice but is actually not so easy. First a priority list is needed at which section the labels are hidden first. Also some labels might be important and rather content gets cropped behind the chevron, or the like. And last but not least I'm afraid of alignment when some labels are hidden and others not.
On the other hand it makes much sense for Notebookbars with many labels like the contextual section variant.

for the alignment and the labeling the designer of the toolbar has to focus. First we need the technical option.

It has to be taken into account when the development starts. How should the prioritization implemented? All this stuff should be clearly defined in advance for all features.

with priority- you can define what to show/hide when the window size was shrinken/enlarged.

you can priority- a DropdownToolBox widget maybe you can use the same thing for sfxlo-NotebookbarToolBox than you can define also the labels with the same priority.

example
first priority- that you hide the label and if this is not enough than the ToolBox (Group)
