I believe there is a plan to make a plan. ;-)

Absolutely. IMO we need the dock, the GnomeApp equivalent, and the
menu/toolbar API to go in as one big unit.  (Ideally the IDE-style
pseudo-MDI thingy would also go in, if possible. Meaning you can stack
multiple open documents in a notebook, tear off a document to be
floating, etc.)

One random item that should be handled in the doc/GnomeApp widget is
allowing themes to do a nicer job with menu/toolbar bevels than they
currently can. For example, draw a single bevel instead of two
adjacent bevels when two toolbars are next to each other. Right now
themes have to draw each menu/toolbar in isolation with no knowledge
of context.
