U4-2645 - BELLE: Sections rollover is confusing

I find the rollover to change sections is quite confusing. I think that it should require either a click or a touch to change section trees.

When you are working in one section to show the tree should only require you to flick the mouse to the left (anywhere on the left) to open that sections tree. Having it change section trees because your mouse happens to be over that section slows the process down.

An example of where the rollover could be annoying and slow work down would be during content creation you often want to work rapidly, creating many nodes of a type.

There's some discussion about this and the sliding content tree panel on the Google Group that might be interesting to folks: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/umbraco-ux/22lEv_hTXz8. I'm not 100% certain about the hover to be honest but I feel having the content tree hidden whilst you're editing is a bit confusing.
