Hmm, its not that bad. Put the cursor on an existing hyperlink, or 
select a button, change the url in the toolbar, choose Text/Button again 
and it is changed.

There is some analogy between the Find&Replace window and the new quick 
find toolbar, and the Hyperlink dialog and this toolbar.
The toolbar is really simple to use.

Yes. That is a fairly recent improvement.

Since the context menu provides easy access, I would say OK. Since the 
Hyperlink dialog is more complex (compare F&R and quick Find), I doubt 
.. Although, people able to choose between target _blank, _self etc, 
must be considered skilled enough to handle the dialog too.

Just my 2c of course.
