In Monobook, the progressive (constructive?) button does not stand out as much as in Vector. Given the unintuitive placement (T128576) this makes users' first experience with VE more unpleasant than it should be.

I think it's bad, that we still offer constructive in Apex. In T110555 the flaws of the dual system of progressive and constructive buttons was stated from several sides. It was already a bit too complex in theory, and has actually never really worked for users in reality due to inconsistent implementation.
Occurrences of mediawiki.UI's mw-ui-constructive have been removed in T146923 and if anything should be done, it's the removal of the visual differences and unification to progressive only style in Apex to not imply esoteric doses of green buttons here and there in the interface on users.
