Good point!

I think that we might be better off with this (static icons) as the default behavior. I do dock "drag & drops" *vastly* more often than adding an icon to the dock.

How many times a week do the icons slide inappropriately for you when dragging & dropping?

Ever drag a bunch of files to a folder or the trash and have it slip aside and you just put 20 items into the dock? No fun! What would a Mac novice make of that one?

I sent a suggestion to Apple a while ago suggesting a pause before the icons slide, accompanied by a visual cue (like a blinking line indicating the space that's about to open up.

This is one of those OSX rough patches...

This would make the addition/modify behavior more consistant with the menubar, toolbar, titlebar...
