Why not? Reloading the current location (URL) and going to the home
location (URL) are definitely related. I would even consider moving the
bookmark function in there, but expected it to be used often enough to
warrant some dominant place. Same rationale for the go-backward button.
go-forward should stay only for consistency.

Adding yet another top-level button for go-home would clutter things
too much IMO.

We should expose our keyboard accelerators in the palettes, but that's
an orthogonal issue as web browsing is usually done with a pointing
device. It's faster for the user to click some button than to switch
to the keyboard and back.
