 My particular concern here is that you would be disconnecting the toolbar
 from the admin menu, which are currently visually coupled together. I
 would also be quite surprised if this played nicely with the sticky admin
 menu or smaller screen responsive considerations.

 It does play nice with the sticky menu as that uses padding on top of
 <html>, though granted it does split the sticky menu from the sidebar.

 I guess this comes back around to, do wordpress dev's tell the user what
 they want, or do users tell wordpress dev's what they want.

 I have to implement this either way, but where I've seen references to it
 before I can't be the only one that needs it.

 affect layout.

 I meant color, just referencing that of the "look and feel", the "look" is
 by design inconsistent.
