Worked only when when I first clicked on some other contextual TB in my MCP/TCP.
I have to say, my ME is floating and I like it that way.
The contestual Midi-TB worked when I switched my ME to be in docked mode.

So I assume it has got something to do with focussing, right?
But I donīt really get it. Donīt really know what the actual problem is.
To me it seems to be a bit inconsistent.

So I open my ME and expect the midi-TB to work right away, but nope.
Focus has to be on arrange-view, that is weird.
Nothing to do with SWS but the way REAPER is designed. You sure you read the REAPER manual?

You didn't assign shortcut in the MIDI editor section of the action list. Find the appropriate action in MIDI editor action list and assign it the same shortcut you use in the main window.

If MIDI editor has the focus, shortcuts aren't automatically passed over to main window. You need to assign them the same way you did for the main window. That's why contextual toolbars have actions in all REAPER sections.
