I think the issue here is trying to have 1 'do everything' SUI skin. That just leads to clutter/overload when panels can't be closed, imo. I have np switching among a handful of skins, selecting what best fits the task at hand.

Multiple color themes and window presentations are great, but secondary to an efficient layout, imo.

An option to hide secondary controls until you mouse over them is also a good idea (similar to being able to disable tooltips after you no longer need them), but there should be keyboard shortcuts for all the major controls and for as many secondary controls as 'practical'.
