Comment (by celloexpressions):

 My comment was accompanied by a patch, so if you agree with the approach
 that the patch takes, which it sounds like most of you do, please test it
 and give feedback on the specific approach that it takes. The next step
 for this ticket is determining if this particular solution is the
 direction we want to go with and then moving towards commit. It
 essentially assumes and ideal percentage of the screen that the Customizer
 should take when the screen is large enough, but constrains it to be no
 less than 300px (current), which works well on most intermediate laptop-
 range screens.

 While un-docking could be explored in the future, that's out of the scope
 of this ticket. @westonruter has done some work with that but I believe
 there were browser support issues with IE, and that would generally
 require a lot more work to get done right then we could do in 4.3.

 Also related: #29949, which could also happen in 4.3 with feedback and
 #28504 also happening, and could potentially be adjusted to leave the
 preview at the larger width and be persistent, with the controls coming in
 over the preview and out when focus changes (that's not really a good UX
 either, though, which is why WordPress.com reverted their similar
 Customizer skinning).
