Bug Description

Sticky headings when scrolling the dash should have some visible separation from the icons that slide under them.

When scrolling the dash you see sticky headings like "Recent" and "My apps". This is great but there's no visible delineation between the heading background that icons are sliding under and the icons themselves. They just appear and disappear.

I think we need a better visual cue for what's happening. Like making the heading transparent so you can see the icons slide under. Or perhaps a simple drop shadow across the edge the icons go under.

[UX Comment]
Edited title to reflect this is a Scopes bug (rather than a "Dash" bug)
This bug applies to items other than icons in the Apps Scope.

Former Lead Visual Designer provided a fix: https://launchpadlibrarian.net/183779221/drop.jpg.

Reassigning to new Lead Visual Designer to follow up on status.

Drop shadows is ok for now. We are working on an improved version of all headers. I reattach the image for reference.
