how about making this resize-dependend ? displaying names as long as
possible (as the dockwidget allows), if not full lenth, use three dots
at the end. The stuff could also made be configurable like toolbar icons
(icons only, text only, text under icons, text next to icons).
If that would be achieved, we would be rid of any discussion of personal
preferences there for all times ;-)
