This is one of those things - one man's default is another's yuk ...

Personally I edit and change the default panels - I just have one on the 

To do more than default you'll have to put it back.

If you've got an old install with what you want then you should be able 
to copy from config/xfce4/panel/ all that you have currently, that said 
I only have 1 panel so don't know what it would look like with 2 ;)

Also, just a general point - these things do get discussed - and there 
are logs - during meetings [1].

I'm sure it's not your intent - but people are welcome to the meetings, 
and to talk too ;)
