regarding Window Level, I'm not seeing a particular panel respecting a level setting of "top". Should I file a bug on this?

Per-Tab panel

What's the use-case for per-tab panels?

OK, I see several use cases:
  • Floating Inspector panels which are bound to a tab
  • Also for Inspector: a ruler which can extend beyond the window's bounds
  • Tab-modal native Mac sheets, like requested in bug 566522 - these could be realized by showing a transparent panel over the content area and opening the sheet on the panel. Since panels are only window-modal, this would still allow interaction with the main browser window.
