The toolbox is not a dockable right now and it would be a lot of work to
turn it into one because there is a lot of code that assumes it isn't a
dockable. Doing this would add several weeks (in actual time) to 2.8
development time and it would not be worth it.
Note that you can have it to the right of dockables by attaching
dockables to the left of it. Also note that the plan is to allow
rearranging entire columns of docks, and the toolbox is part of a column
and will be movable that way. So the only limitation will be that
dockables can't be put on top of the toolbox, so it's not that serious.
