I hadn't thought of that.
I've added it to the list (of *all* ideas).

It's both reasonable and quite a bit of work.

Historically (and in upstream Mutt), various parts of the code write to
absolute screen coordinates. Adding the Sidebar, years ago, meant
updating a LOT of code to be Sidebar-aware.
The new "layouts" code represents all the components as a nested set of
Windows. If the Sidebar becomes visible, the Index Window is resized
and the it gets a notification to repaint itself. The Index Window is
completely unaware of the Sidebar.
The new code is working nicely, but there's a bit more work to do.
That's the simple 2-dimensional view.
The next step would be to add floating Windows (menus and popups, etc).
