I thought side windows, no?

Yes, they are not useful for window configurations, but
window-local tab-bars are extremely useful for displaying
the list of prev/next buffers as tabs.  So the user can see
the names of all buffers that were displayed in the window,
and clicking on the tab will switch to any of previously
displayed buffers.  And clicking on [x] will remove the
buffer from the list of previous window-local buffers.

I agree, mode-lines duplicate the battery charge information
in every window.  What do you think about creating the frame-local
mode-line using the bottom side window?

The same X-dependency as the tool-bar uses, and there is no tool-bar
on non-X-based systems.
