Twenty Fourteen: Search overload

A fresh install of trunk currently gives you three separate search boxes all visible at once on every page. Two in the Twenty Fourteen theme and one in the admin toolbar.

It's even possible to have all three expanded at once:

We should remove the Search widget from the default widgets, because Twenty Fourteen has a search bar at the top.

I would also like to get rid of the search button in the admin toolbar, but I doubt many people will agree with me on that one.

Could be a usability feature rather than a bug. :) Search anywhere, we'll help you get to the content, fast.

I don't think this is a big deal. Obviously not loggedin user don't see the admin bar, and most of users will change widgets. Even there are three at the same time, like @lancewillett says, it's a feature.

Also worth noting that for the majority of people viewing the actual blog it's only two search forms (often likely only 1). +1 to wontfix.
