You are right about poDesigned not making so much sense with the single 
docked window layout, as you can't move the form with the mouse. (I 
believe lazarus can also be set up this way, at least using experimental 
patches.)  I did some testing with Delphi XE3 - the default empty form 
has Position = poDefaultPosOnly and Top = Left = 0. If you edit Top or 
Left with the keyboard, the form doesn't move, but the IDE changes the 
Position to poDesigned.
