Control Center as it is now takes even more of screen estate; besides it
is a separate application, so the action that is now two-click for me
(open the menu; find and activate the necessary item) becomes
three-click (open the menu; run Control Center, another window opens;
find and activate the necessary item). Moreover, the task termination
sequence from one-click (close the settings window) becomes two-click
(close the settings window; close the Control Center window). Don't see
how a user wins in this approach.
