I like this very much - it's much cleaner. 

Now the "dockability" is advertised with a tool tip while hoovering over
the docking bar. How will the new version do this? How important is

When a dockable-drag is started, the docking targets should be visible
prominently, not only the bar in it's current version. Perhaps even as a
bubbles floating on top of the targets.
