#26960 new enhancement

Audit extraneous HTML/CSS for the admin menu

In working on #18380, I've noticed quite a bit of cruft that has built up over time, some of it directly related to the split between colors and structure. For example, the .wp-menu-arrow is no longer visible in the 3.8 redesign, but the HTML and CSS remain. Once #18380 and #26669 are complete, we should take a closer look at this.

Yes, it's a solid chunk of HTML with far too many classes. There are about 800-900 lines of CSS (including colors), I bet it doesn't need more than 200-250 :)

The way it works can be simpler too. Not sure it needs the user controllable auto-fold at 900px as it goes into "mobile" mode at 782px.
