I think it is a good idea to layout only plot objects and not top-level objects (like labels), better anyway than what is done right now. However, I don't see how we can avoid covering some plots with the top-level floating objects (which will result in user complaints), unless we implement the "flow-around" part of bug #109430. 
In the discussion attached to bug #109430, George mentioned that there is no clear concept as to how this could be done. Maybe I have missed some issues, but to me it does not sound utterly complicated to maintain a list of objects with the "flow-around" property set, and determine the area available to layout plots as the biggest interior rectangle. "Cleanup layout" would only use this area, thus avoiding interference with objects that the users may have put on the sides...

Note that this is a very important request for me, as many people here complain that they cannot easily add extra information in their windows while preserving all the nice layouting functionality kst offers.
