    1 How about this method instead or in addition? You know the “Remove” link that appears at the bottom of a widget in the Customizer (next to the redundant “Close” link)? Right now, as @westonruter said, it just moves the widget to the Widget Trash, known to users as “Inactive Widgets” but which is for all intents and purposes a Widget Zone (is that the proper term?) that isn’t displayed on the site.

    33How about replacing that link with (or adding) a “Move Widget to…” drop-down menu that shows all of the other Widget Zones ''including'' the “Inactive Widgets” Trash Zone (at the bottom of the list)? Then with a single mouse move, any Widget can be quickly and easily moved from its current zone to the bottom of any other zone, or made Inactive. The drop-down could either not show the current Widget Zone at all, or show it but disable it (gray it out and make it non-selectable).
