While editing widgets in accessibility mode the position can be indicated by widget titles instead of numbers

Guess it title says it all. Right now you need to figure out the position you want the widget to be at and try remember it while editing the widget.
I suggest to change the text text of the position column header from "position" to "position after" and use labels in the drop down
1 => "top"
2 => top widget title
3 => second widget title
