Take a look at this excellent instructional video by whs. Toolbars - How to Create and Use - Windows 7 and Vista It shows you how to add toolbars to the desktop. You might be able to use this method to create more than one toolbar.
You might also get some suggestions from these tutorials:
How to Add or Remove a Toolbar on the Taskbar in Vista and Windows 7
How to Enable or Disable Adding and Removing Taskbar Toolbars in Vista and Windows 7
Also, here's some 3rd party help:
Winstep Nexus Dock
StandaloneStack - Free software downloads (It uses the same stacks library as RocketDock. You can have a folder with subfolders of categorized apps that you can use as a toolbar.)

You misunderstand. I refer to the feature functionality as it worked in XP.
For my three monitors I want one toolbar each.
One bar on the right side of the right monitor, and...
One bar on the left side of the left monitor, and...
One bar on the bottom or on the top of the center monitor.
All three bars configured with different content (application/object links) specific/tailored to what I want to access on/at whatever particular monitor each one is attached to.
THAT is what I find missing that was available in XP (among some others).
THAT is what is not possible in Windows 7 (at the moment at least).
There are some 3rd party tools out there yes, but they look like fisher price toys invariably or lack the features or simple non-distracting system integrated appearance of the original.
When I have the time to dig into it I will probably put my own tool together to do just that (I am a software developer). Finding the time is the issue.
Currently I have icons all over the place localized to whatever monitor the desktop real estate is specific to.
I used to have toolbars. Now I have homeless icons in the Desktop Wilderness.
It is a fair user interface step back.
