Separators should never be used in HIG compliant dialogs, but all GTK+
really can do is, where it's compatible with existing API and property
defaults, gently encourage HIG compliance. 

(After all, GTK+ isn't just used on GNOME.)

If changing the separator to default to off was sufficiently compatible,
we probably would, but it isn't.
