I think the layout of the Media preflet could still be improved, even though it 
partly uses the layout-management. So if you made the entire control use 
layout-management, that would work. The alignment of the controls is currently 
weird (right side doesn't align with device list, different spacing and insets 
here and there, old icons used, etc.). But if you want to work on something 
with more immediate benefit, just try all the other preflets with 18pt and see 
which one is in desperate need of some love. :-)

Best regards,
