But placing panels in a bottom layout doesn't mean much IMO. Panels  
are not meant to have a reduced vertical size. I think what you wanted  
is not Panels in the current sense but extension points in the skin to  
be able to add/modify content anywhere.

This is the UI extension design we've been discussing for some time on  
the dev mailing list. It's planned for the future but no hard date has  
been set.

BTW you could still achieve this right today using some javascript.  
Exactly like what is done by Greasemonkey 
). Of course it's even easier to just modify the skin... ;)
