As in comment 8
... the Slides or Pages preview/sorter panes will have to expand to accommodate
however many are pinned into the .ui layout.

No the Slides/Pages pane, canvas and Sidebar consume the space across the UI.
As you adjust one you impact the others. Content of the Slides/Pages pane
responds to available width. 

You can see the effect when you grab the right edge of the Slides/Pages pane
and drag it larger or smaller. The preview of each slide/page will enlarge or
shrink to fit the width.  

If as suggested, .UI button widgets are inserted into the pane(s), the icons
used would not resize--so the width would either have to be limited (it now is
not), or the buttons will have to hide as width of pane(s) shrink.  Depending
on how many buttons are added, the default width of the pane(s) and previews
will need to increase---reducing space available on the Presentation or Drawing

Not a problem at 1920x1080 but folks still at 4:3 1024x768 will not be happy.
But, since our minimum "supported" size has been moving toward 1366x768, impact
would likely be acceptable in general.
