The story is rather complicated here.

The original contents.xml.LL come from xfce4-panel-4.2.3, and there is 
no tooltip for the mail check icon here either. So this is an upstream 
issue. But, those stock XML files assume that we have a full Mozilla 
installation, not Firefox+Thunderbird. This difference is accounted for 
by the cleanup-panel.pl script in the repository.

So even if upstream provides a tooltip, we would not be able to use it 
because it would be valid for full Mozilla only. I already asked on 
#lfs-support if this is wanted (motivating by the reduced ISO image size 
due to removed duplicate libraries if we adopt the full Mozilla), and 
received a very negative response.
