I think re-adding floating panels as we had in 2.49 is a good idea. 
Quite often I would like to see only the properties for a tool and the 
floating panels allowed me to move those properties exactly where I 
wanted at any given time, while not showing the rest of the gui. I also 
miss the old Scripts view in 2.49 too. It would be nice to have a custom 
area that was only for addons like this.

The topshelf ala Maya is a great idea too :)
