In case you haven't noticed we ARE moving in this direction.
The disentanglement of gmDemographics from the top pane is the
first step to get there. It's IMHO also the main culprit for
making that part of the code rather gruesome to grasp.

However, INSIDE Richards "Clinical" tab we do need another
way of dynamically handling the layout.

The problem about it is not its intelligence or its
perceived superfluousness (vocabulary ?) but its
intransparency (which in turn may be due to my
incomprehension). Anyone is free to change that.

And, yes, a way to dynamically change the content of the
clinical tab IS useful. Whether a window managing subsystem is
needed for that is another matter.
