Why do modern pages leave so much white space?

When using modern pages, there is always about 25% of the screen width that is unused on the right side.  Why won't any web parts extend further to the right and use that space?

The amount of unused screen width actually depends on your screen resolution which is quite common for Web Applications I think. The larger your screen (resolution) the larger the amount of unused space there will be. 

 

It would be nice though to have some "full-width" layouts available...

Why not make the Sections horizontally responsive ?!
Easy solution and looks a lot better and more efficient.

 

Also the spacing between documents in a library or list, should give the user the choice to adapt it !

Please have been complaining about this for 2 years and Microsoft still has not done anything to fix it.   When will Microsoft respond or act?
