Seems to use a lot of room, maybe it should be in the right? I think 
doing these mockups at anything larger 1024x768 is a mistake.

Waaaay too small. Remember people over 35 use WP too. ;)

It doesn't make sense for the textarea to expand beyond where you could 
see the quicktags.

I didn't even notice this until you mentioned it, if you're trying to 
emphasis the buttons (which are too small now) perhaps it's too subtle? 
Overall though when watching people using WP for the first time I've 
never seen anyone have trouble finding the publish button. Maybe because 
it's bold?
