Well, I could, and I can probably move my tasklist and notification on
TOP so that everything is nicely in one place but...
 - it doesn't work well for bottom feeders like gnome-terminal and
 - I usualy end up doing what I am doing with a tab at its bottom rather
than its top. 

So that would be two reasons for me to want all my switchers/notifiers
at bottom. 
(I've just realized how extremely rarely I read the window titles. All
the important info is in the tasklist already)
