Comment (by afercia):

 Second point:

 > The outline and "Drag here..." text probably shouldn't be visible when
 there's nothing to add there.

 I think this is related to the `visible == 1` bit :) Glad to know we
 traced it back to its original purpose. I have no strong opinion on this.
 We can restore it and not show the dashed outline + text when there's only
 1 visible box.

 On the other hand, with so many large screens in use today we should take
 into consideration many desktop users will likely see 4 sortables areas on
 the Dashboard.

 Theoretically, users could end up in a situation like the one in the
 screenshot attached below. I'd tend to think in that scenario, it would be
 best to show the outline + text. But again I have no strong opinion, I'd
 defer the decision to you.
