Your mockup reminds me of the interface in some CAD programs, where the functionality of something like the properties panel is split into separately dockable mini-toolbars that you can place wherever you want. It often ends up looking like your design. I like being able to see all the settings I'm using at once.

I'm not sure how the new properties window in 1.3.4 works--did I read something about the individual parts being able to be torn off and docked, or are all the options visible already anyway?
