I see your point, though I have to ask "Can we afford *not* to find space
for this". The fewer sidebars you have, the less the extra space will hurt,
but at the same time the more sidebars you have the more desperately your
users need help differentiating them. Also if you think its a waste of space
you can just not define them for your sidebars and you'll have no problems,
this would only be relevant/problematic if the theme/plugin author thought
it was a good idea.
