It would be useful to have floating panels - both in the desktop and iPad versions of AP - for some features. For example, the Scopes panels - and indeed regarding scopes would it not be helpful to also be able to see more than one scope at a time? If the panels could be individually floated, then it should be possible to do this, so that one could have, for example, an RGB parade and a Vectorscope visible or even a Curves and a Vectorscope simultaneously. The panels could be pinned to parts of the screen as the user wished. It is possible that this could become confusing however - as sometimes happens with GIMP if many tools are used. In the iPad version of AP it seems awkward to have only one tool "out" at any one time - and floating panels could overcome this.
It would be great to have global clipping warnings inside of the regular Photo persona. Photoshop has implemented clipping warning overlays as part of a few tools, such as Levels and Curves, but it won't for instance help you when you are trying to use the dodge and burn tools to get a pure white or pure black background and other workflows. Since I assume that this is already planned as part of the Curves and Levels improvements on the roadmap, I would suggest to make it a view option, accessible either from the View menu or in the Histogram/Scopes panels that can be used at any time, with any of the tools available instead of adding it only to two or meticulously adding it to all sorts of adjustments manually. Holding Option inside Levels/Curves and on the Luminosity slider in HSL adjustments, Black&White etc. would then temporary toggle that option to the opposite of its current setting (i.e. on when it's off and off when it's on). Video cameras often implement the overlay as a zebra pattern, and you can customize the threshold at which it shows up. That's actually a useful workflow for other areas as well. For instance, you could have your clipping warnings at 95% if you wanted to see which areas are reaching a range that while they might not be clipped, would not show detail when offset printing the image. A preference to animate a zebra pattern inside the clipping warning, like the marching ants of selections do, would also make it help stand out when the image is visually very similar to the overlay pattern.
