Yes, Ediff's UI is a bit problematic in this respect, indeed.

This will probably help Haines, indeed, but comes with its own set of
problems.  I'd much prefer a mode that dispenses completely with
a "control window/frame/buffer". and uses maybe some prefix key or some
modal interface in the main buffers to access the functionality
currently provided by the separate control buffer.

I think `vdiff` (in GNU ELPA) tries to do something like what I propose,
tho I never really tried to use it (I don't use Ediff very often
either, I usually prefer to look at `diff` output instead, in
`diff-mode`, or otherwise merge the different versions into a single
file with `diff3` and then use `smerge-mode`).
