I appreciate that you're trying to innovate, and this requires pushing
boundaries. I also appreciate that the WMF fundraising principle "minimal
disruption" is subjective thing - and that the WMF has traditionally
taken this to mean "be disruptive for the shortest period" rather than "be
less disruptive overall, even if it takes longer".
However, I do feel that *resizing all the article content to the left, and
occupying the entire right side third of the screen with a donation request
that follows me as I scroll *is significantly more than minimally
disruptive. Personally, I would request that this design approach not be
pursued on that basis.

p.s. Also, on my screen at least, the "x" dismiss button in the top-right
is so small that it hides under Chrome's translucent scrollbar
