I do not like the idea for this reasons:
Draw and Writer are very different, and therefore it is natural, that they need
different content in status bar.
Fields are only similar on a first glance, but actually provide different
Users are familiar with the current order for several years now, starting with
StarOffice about 15years ago.
Changing the layout introduces additional work for documentation, which is done
currently by a really small team.

Do not remove that field. It is essential for changing shapes in point mode.
For example it is the only place to get the angles of an arc.
