Interesting and reasonable reason.

My argument is just the opposite: put specific info
to the left, and more common, less specific info to
the right.

I hate it when some application or website insists
on putting the app/site name at the left of every
browser window, with the real info - about the
specific page or whatever, relegated to the right.

Why? Because narrowing the window, or seeing the
title in a tab, cuts off the pertinent part: the
part that makes a difference.

Good to see different arguments.  Picking a default
behavior is, like other things, about trade-offs.
