Please read http://theoatmeal.com/comics/making_things (especially the
last part about comments). It completely applies here.

Oh and just on the fun side, your “real user need”:

So here we have 2 panels on a Xinerama setup. On each screen, you have
grossly 3 areas of applets: left, middle, right. Exactly the kind of
setup gnome-panel 3 was made for.

The 3 areas of applets precisely answer that need: your applets won’t
wobble around, they will always stay where they are. You can have
several times the same applets at different positions, too.

What you are telling me is that GNOME 2.x / MATE does not answer your
user needs, while gnome-panel 3 does.

Thanks, for the entertainment, MATE :)
