UI Team: what is the actual preferred way here?

I can see the inconsistency:

  • some tools use ED_workspace_status_text [bevel, ...]
  • some tools use still use ED_area_status_text [inset, ...]

Since I assume that the preferred way is actually to have it in the status bar (see rBdf02675e2173), I guess the usages of ED_area_status_text need to be moved to ED_workspace_status_text...
Can do that, just need a green light here.
