[Usability] Alt-drag panel items?

Hello everyone

I'm a huge fan of the Alt-drag trick for moving windows around. I was wondering if the same thing could be done with the panel? Currently moving panel items is a mess. Most can only be moved by right- clicking and selecting move, although some of them (application launchers) can simply be dragged—provided they're not locked.

Maybe we can simplify the panel by locking ALL items (thereby removing the need for the "Lock" context menu item), but letting the user Alt-drag them around (thereby removing the need for the "Move" context menu item) and maybe even dragging them off the panel or into the Wastebasket (thereby removing the need for the "Remove" context menu item). This could free up the context menu for other purposes.

Does it sound like a good idea?

P.S. I commented in Bugzilla (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi? id=303135), but I figured this might interest the Usability group.
