Remove Hidden Widget UI

Description

I have come up with a issue with the new widget enhancements.

The fact that we have to drag the widget a long way to move it to inactive status. On most screens this is below the visual area of the screen. Yet the only UI to collapse and expand the available widget area is hidden and you don't see it until your hover over text that doesn't appear or look like something you would hover over to see a user interaction. This makes it hard to us or even know it is their or available.

The other UI issue also have to do with the widget placement as well.

When you go to add a widget it asks you if which area do you want it added to. (For example: Main Widget Area or Secondary Widget Area) But when removing the widget the only options you have (without dragging them) is close and delete. There is no "Move to Inactive"

Once a widget is in the Inactive Widgets area you can't add the widget via the button you once could in the new widget area. Can we have just one experience for both New and Inactive Widgets?

I also have a Screencast which you can see here: http://f.cl.ly/items/0a293y0P363W1p0V2A11/Widget-Screen-Recording.mov
