OK, then let me rephrase it:
The useless parts are wasting space. If anything has to be big, then the part 
of the OSD widgetthat displays the actually important part (=the progress 
But maybe this can be part of the future KCM. Plasma-Mediacenter which will 
potentially be used on a TV and seen from a sofa, obviously needs bigger 
widgets than a desktop PC.

Do you already work on a KCM? I'd like to provide a few mockups, because I 
already have some ideas in mind for the Notifications KCM (some are floating 
in my mind for some time which are related to notifications in general, not 
OSDs specifically, but I can incorporate the OSD parts in my mockups).
