Although it is not very important it would be handy to be able to reposition these icons so that those of us who skip repeatedly from email to spreadsheet to website could place and anchor them always in the same order.

If I understand what you're describing correctly...

Go to Panel Preferences, and choose the relevant panel, and under
Items, select the Window Buttons item, and then edit it.  If you set
the sorting order to "None, allow drag and drop" you should be able to
get them in the order desired.  Whether they will stay that way or not
is something I can't say, I don't use that order.
