Well, it is collapsible - if you install the CompactHeader addon...

But this is a perfect example of some functionality that should have 
*never* been removed from the core code (another example being removing 
the ability to 'Extra Folder Columns' to the folder pane, that the 
'Extra Folder Columns' Addon gave us back thankfully). I can see no good 
reason to remove either of these features from the core code.

But, if you have the extension installed and already have your UI 
optimized to maximize usable area, a single line can make definitely 
make a difference, especially on a netbook where screen real estate is 
most valuable.
