I think the problem with that approach is mostly sizing/tiling: 
if the panel adds decorations (around its outside borders) then it will
paint them outside the screen; if it keeps the same allocation and
steals the space from the inside elements that will be ugly and weird
also.  Compared to the current rash of bug reports that would *really*
make people scream.
