yeah, i think that the wasted space is bad, and is the best place for the 
artwork image. i think this is similar to how iTunes does it (haven't used 
it too much tho, and after using it for an hour or so i said to myself - RB 
is better! :) )

once the artwork had been dragged there the note would be covered up(until a 
new album with no artwork was selected).

yeah, i think the viz plugin shouldnt really be in rb, but it might be 
implemented one day and that was just an idea for HOW it could be done. i 
dont really like the whole visualisation thing.
