I like this reasoning in general.

However, there are many more issues with the property-panel visuals than
just the triangles, including the out-of-alignment section-checkboxes, the
busy diagonal drag-handles, and unclear panel disable indication.

Rather than one-offing just one of these issues, it's worth the effort to
make a clean and consistent refinement proposal which fixes them all. If
the triangles are still an issue, we can think about a theme setting, if
not, we don't need it.

Harley and I are working on property-panel visual refinement proposal based
on some of his previous mockups. We expect to post something to bf-funboard
soon. If folks like it, we can leapfrog. If not, perhaps something like
this stopgap triangle disable may make sense.
