First of all, thanks for showing enthusiasm in hepling GIMP UI wise.
It seems however that you have not noticed the UI progress that has been
put into GIMP through the work of mailny Peter Sikking. In fact, several
UI related specifications has been written by Peter Sikking and
implemented by the core developers.
I suggest you check out the UI wiki  to get a view of the current
GIMP UI state, and then coordinate with the existing UI people.
Regarding multiple UIs, the big problem with that is that it multiplies
the required efforts in several areas: coding, documentation, knowledge
when giving help, and so on.
