For most of the panes, a popover isn't appropriate, as the pane is simply
too complex to be useful as a popover. As per elementary's guidelines 
(GNOME doesn't have its own popover guidelines yet), "don't use a popover
if the user would spend more than a few seconds in it".
In the case of the Properties pane, I hope one day it will completely
replace the formatting dialogs that we have.
That said, I would love to have some simple, specialized popovers for quick
tweaks. Even something like
http://bassultra.deviantart.com/art/Spreadsheet-363147552 (that's still
just a subset of what we have in Properties). Or an Insert popover.
That's a project for another day, though.
I think this would be better than showing them in a sidebar, since the
> mouse has to travel more and there's no visual connection.
It'd be great if it was possible to align toolbar buttons to the right .
That could solve both the mouse travel and the visual connection problems.
I hope to have a discussion on this at the upcoming hackfest.
