Certainly. Here it is why its important to me. I keep my tabs for both
galeon and xchat to bottom along with my tasklist, pager,  notification
area. this allows me to:

 - keep them together because they serve a similar purpose: switching
the point of attention.
 - mouse-move less when interacting with any of these 
 - "monitor" less screen estate for notable events like a blue xchat or
galeon tab

Now ...I could put them all on top ... could use more keyboard than
mouse...something else as an alternative workflow approach. 

But I don't and I don't see the point in switching.
