Of course. But I find it inconvenient to jump with the eyes from the
mouse pointer which is over a button/toolbar icon/menu entry down to
the echo area where it is explained what the button/toolbar icon/menu
entry does.

IMO, tooltips should pop up very close to the item they describe, not
at the other end of the screen.
