Why? DockedWindows already exist in QtC. So its clear how it will look and feel.
So Questions 1 and 2 are ready for answers.
Ziller Eike also gave his ideas to Question 3.

So where do you see reason to implement anything to share answers to these 3 quesitons.

Agree. Discussion should be like no more than ~1/10 of feature coding work time. But if Hunger Tobias thinks it is like months ...
why not to wait couple weeks for people to share their ideas?
