Perhaps.  One of the reasons behind a separate tab for widgets is the
support for expanding use scenarios.  Right now, most people use
widgets for sidebar stuff.  But they are much more useful than that...

Sidebar groups come to mind - several sidebars (or better called
something like widget containers) grouped together and then used
according to some set of conditions (if (is_home() {
widget_container_group($main) } else {
widget_cotainer_group($secondary) })...
