Following an import, I typically walk through my photos one-by-one looking for any oooh-shots where Ansel Adams may have been channeling through my shutter finger. Typically seeing few to none, I then start discarding and tweaking, hoping I can again rescue my photo-creative self-dignity, salvaging at least a couple worthy of LR 4-5 star notation and maybe even impress my wife (my most important critic). Since at this point, I'm already in develop mode, wouldn't it be insightful to be able to push a button and view a popup of the EXIF data, particularly the exposure settings, to help instill why something I tried did or didn't work? I know I can hop back to library mode and scroll down to see the info but I'm often dissuaded from doing this because of the time it takes for the computer to switch modes and then switch back again. It definitely impedes the workflow to do this mode switch--so I don't. But I should. So, I'm American--why can't I have instant gratification and feedback? I'm thinking a off/on floating panel or a press-for-popup EXIF balloon or maybe just a view option in the status bar.
