Addressing Proximity in the admin area

This ticket is to address proximity issues in the admin area as a whole.
New tickets should be created for individual issues as they are found and reported.

In web design, the principle of proximity states that related items should be placed close together. By the same token, if things are spaced farther apart they appear to have less relation to one another.

This principle is especially critical for users with low vision. It will even be addressed in the next draft of the WCAG guidelines! See Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision

Additionally, there will be ongoing education in Make WordPress Accessible to help better understand the issue so that problems become more apparent.
