Yes, at least the basic settings should be available. Personally I would prefer less controls in the sidebar- only the most frequently needed, and rather remove some from the other sidebar configurations. But consistency is prime and the full set is still an improvement to the current situation.

And here I start about design guidelines again ;-). Is sidebar an replacement for the toolbar of an aid next to the toolbar/Tabbed bar etc.

I don't like crowded sidebar either.. but that depends mostly on the design principles. They Draw sidebar is to crowded already. Still gets folded etc which reduces accessibility

However no clue if you can customize the sidebar? Would make it possible to reduce it tot the basics ("core functionality"). And let people modify/tweak it themselves. Or addition step.. extensions with 'presets' for user groups.
