Thanks for your feedback, it is now obvious that collapsible panels are not
intuitive and need to be improved.
I started a discussion about this here:

I believe this is a fairly common issue, because MPL has been around for so
many years and so many core libraries depend on it. This has always been a
personal concern of mine, in fact I even opened a side project within Metal
that aims to address the problem by providing a minimal implementation of
MPL that could be used as a drop in replacement for use cases like yours.
