The player names taking a lot of space is in many cases an annoyance, yes. I usually end up F12 and hiding/tweaking those divs. A rework in the GUI is very welcome.
Another problem we usually have is the difficulty to retrieve/recover inputs. Debug it's OK sometimes, but on Platinum Rifts it's almost impossible to export data for debugging/tests.
There should be an option to have a window with inputs per turn. Not debug console, but a separate, specific frame for that.
