With widescreen and even standard 16:9 aspect ratio monitors, there is significant horizontal but relatively limited vertical screen real estate. With Output Area Panel enabled, viewing query results is very difficult when you have 3 windows stacked on top of each other (query tab, result tabs and Output Area Panel).

How to repeat:
Open Output Area panel and run a text heavy, property formatted query.

Suggested fix:
Ideally, Output Area, Secondary Sidebar and the Result Tab Panels would be side or bottom dockable to allow user to best manage their screen real estate regardless if it's a landscape or portrait setup. Just making Result Tabs side dockable would go a long way that way you can have your query tab and result tab next to each other.

Workaround - use toggle panels/sidebars

Thank you for verifying my feature request. Suggested workaround makes no sense, however.
