It would be nice to show the selection coordinates (X and Y) in the info panel.

I use that when creating sprites. It's useful to know the coordinates and dimensions of each image, so i select around the image to get that info, but i have to work around the current behavior of the info panel.

The workaround is to try to transform the selection (you can then see the X and Y of the transform box), but sometimes it's kind of frustrating to actually find your layer in order to try to transform it.

So a really nice solution would be to also show the selection coordinates in a separate place

This would definitely be useful! At my company we often need to know the precise dimensions of lots of layers in a big PSD, and it's annoying to have to keep typing Command-T on each one.
