Icon descriptions should be visible all the time
Descriptions for icons are mostly invisible until you are moving the mouse onto it. From a usability point of view they should be visible all the time.

I think this should be implemented. When you have 1 or 2 icons it is nice to display the text next to it, like the action bar on top of the page does... I also do it in some cases where the actions are limited just to improve usability. But imagine a table with 5, 10, 15?? possible actions... displaying all their names in full will mess up the table view. I refer to the new personal messenger application that has that much actions available.
