Bug Description

With the current display framework the sidestage appear only when GU_count >= 60 and occupies 40 GU. This means that on a 7" tablet we should see a sidestage. However, a sidestage on an N7 is suboptimal as even in landscape the visible area of the main stage is about half of the sidestage width, and in portrait, when the sidestage is in overlay it will completely obscure the main stage.

----------------------------------------------------
Desired behaviour

The threshold for sidestage should be GU_count >= 80. This means that of the supported devices sidestage will be enabled only on the nexus 10.

So what should be the minimum width when we enable sidestage?

Adding ubuntu-ux for design guidance.

Taking the OAK conversation into account, we need to revisit, as it was said we should enable side stage on 5.5"+ screens.
