As you have seen gtk themes are my specialty :) I can help with the
theme and I have send a pdf document to #gnome-shell about perspectives
of integration between the shell and gtk and the new file browser. I
agree with you about the menus but we should not be too drastic with
such kind of stuff because sometimes pictures help a lot for the
usability if are amongst items with no images. Could I even suggest to
remove the menubars and make a new control like entry in which you type
the first letter of a menu and the corresponding submenu would appear
beneath. Still there would be a way to get the whole menu listed
somehow. I attach a preview of my idea. In it the submenu is not
complete but you get the general idea.

Could help too but I've never done such kind of work so probably i won't
be of any use.

I like what are they doing and I hope they finish it in time for Gnome

I'm interested in that design for dialogs. What is this exactly? I can
help with the games and definitely with the shell and journal.
