I'm a little worried about that you started prototyping UI so early.
Also, what you have to be aware of is:
1. GIMP's UI is a work in progress.
2. Scribus's UI is a work in progress.
3. Inkscape's UI is more or less settled, but some changes are planned.
For Scribus, if I got it right, the idea is to make a modularized
properties palette much like GIMP's one. And for Inkscape the plan was
to eventually move to upstream libgdl which would provide GIMP-like
regroupable docking palettes as well. Which means that at least three
projects are already gravitating to a similar UI.
