 The Customizer currently works on mobile, despite what you might think.
 Utilizing the "collapse" function, it's possible to change settings and
 switch back and forth between the controls and the preview window. But the
 experience doesn't work on every device (there are some scrolling issues),
 and could be much smoother and more intuitive.

 The controls part of the Customizer is already mobile-optimized - at 300px
 wide, it works quite well on mobile and the only major issues are with
 things like the widget-adder that pop out of the main control panel.
 Similarly, the preview works down to tablet-sized devices with responsive
 themes, although it continues to be squeezed to unrealistic widths on
 smaller devices.

 We should look at revamping the Customizer experience on smaller devices -
 anything smaller than about 620px wide can't realistically be used in the
 standard controls/preview mode. For this ticket, the goal is to make the
 cosmetic tweaks necessary to streamline the Customization experience on
 mobile, most likely by hiding the preview at a certain point and
 highlighting the ability to switch between the controls and the preview.
