[development] Fixing themes and regions

For what it's worth, the regions give me exactly what I need: customization
of design without writing or altering code.
The 4.7 site that I'm working on has 7 regions, though some of them are not
obvious from the presentation.
One of them is currently unused, 3 are left-rail, content, footer.
I also added 'login', 'header' (unused), 'inline', and 'right header'.
On this page: http://rubybaboon.com/taxonomy/term/20 it lets me:
- put the login in the upper right
- put Tagadelic's tag cloud next to my site logo
- put the 'popularity' ranking (custom module) above the content (that's
the inline block).
So I think the issue may be: many people don't need multiple regions. Or it
may be that people don't know how best to exploit them. The hidden region I
have would allow me to post a sitewide message at the top of all pages
In 4.6, I had to use flexiblock or use snippets. No more.
