Thanks for the suggestion!
That window is planned to be filled with an on-demand tip system in 2.8.
It is not yet clear exactly how that will look or work, but since a
double-click might not be as natural then as it is now, we should wait
with doing that change until the fate of the no-image-window is clearer.
Doing it for 2.6 risks a regression if we need to remove it in 2.8 again.
