No, it would be better there, and it would fill in blank spaces. Keeping it like that would be perfect!

Quickly, what is that font and font size used for the image? I just got CS4 Premium suite, and I would like to make my own version.
I figured it out.
Bank Gothic Light BT. It's actually in the Soldat folder (bgothl.ttf). Size - I just eyeballed it. Around 12 maybe?

Player indicator and sniper line.. those aren't really options for player himself, they're for the in-game interface. Perhaps there should be "GUI" section in the options (not player options)? It could have those 2 options, as well as the menu to choose interfaces. I think they would belong together better.

Maybe you should rename this thread into "New options menus"? I think we should not only discuss the player options, but also the other options menu and make a few design concepts for that too.

i dont know much about this stuff, but wouldn't it be possible to make entire Soldat Menu customizable? It would be cool if there was a possiblity to make different skins.

AFAIK, it would be possible only if Soldat menu actually used images. Currently it seems like every element has its hard-coded color. If buttons and backgrounds were replaced with images and if there was a way to change font colors - menu skins would be possible (and is a nice idea too).
I suppose it's possible to hack the colors via hex-editing, but it's not gonna be easy. :|

IMO mouse sensetivety doesn't need a bar, but I agree that it's currently difficult to see if you successfully changed a key or not, so this would be one solution.
