My 2c...
I thought some of these recent UI changes were to reduce UI wasted space 
- having a blank area immediately to the right of a tab merely so that a 
singular tab can be displayed whose information is duplicated elsewhere 
in the UI seems rather pointless to me, and would make me think that the 
UI design in fundamentally flawed in some respect... or maybe I'm 
missing something vital. *shrug* Haven't really been paying much 
attention to this thread, so I'll shurrup now.
