While other modules have many properties that require frequently user input,
it's not the same for Math, IMHO. For example, how often do users change the
font size? Maybe from time to time but all those relative values?

More input for requirements is in bug 39750 (unsure if everything is possible
what Bjoern asks for) and bug 99169 requests panel integration in Writer.
dmath.org seems to be discontinued.

Good start and easy to realize solution, we just take what's in the existing
dialogs and put it into the sidebar.
However, I always disliked those heavy UIs. Some details: the basic font size
could go next to the font name (and bold/italic). Alignment could be done
smaller with toggle buttons. And the percentual values are good for sliders.
And while the symbols are something different it would be more interesting to
show them on the primary panel. So I suggest to collapse the relative section
and have the symbols there too.
