It seems there is an user base with good motives for a first class
horizontal layout, so instead of having a group grumbling about how
they have to cope up with something else, you can redirect them into
doing something positive: maintain the other layout in a unified way
and benefit everyone.

Please explain this point because currently vertical layout pushes
around other panels when one above changes or by adding new panels
(easy test, enter and exit mode for mesh, transform changes size and
mesh view appears).

Forcing vertical, as is or via automatic convert, into horizontal does

See point above about avaliable space.
