Just as a reference, in GNOME editable entries, when in a context 
where it is not clear they are editable, have a pencil symbolic icon as you 
suggested, but there is no "Edit" tooltip. Another thing is that the icon 
disappears if the user has the text cursor in the entry.

I have no strong opinion on the tooltip, I will look into implementing this.
