Still a good idea perhaps.

I have mixed feelings.

no height-for-width is to e.g. make label wrapping work correctly. 
It's essentially adding a method to GtkWidget that asks the widget
what height it would be for a given width.

Was somewhat done for 2.0, probably can't be finished until 3.0.

The dock widget, MDI widget, and possibly "main application window"
widget all sort of go together, in that they have to form a coherent
overall API. They are entangled in the menu/toolbar stuff as well.
