I do not share your concerns. I usually remove the Zoom-icon from the
standard toolbar. Its functionality in Writer and Calc is full covered
by the number field in the status bar.
In Draw I usually activate the Zoom toolbar and dock it besides the
standard toolbar in my customization. I use its zooming tools so often,
that it is helpful to have them immediately. Perhaps this zooming
toolbar can be opened and docked by default instead of the zoom icon?

No, please not another field in the statusbar. There's already not
enough space to show all context informatation in Draw and Writer.
