BTW, Unity actually has pretty good design documents for its core features (for example: http://design.canonical.com/2011/03/introducing-overlay-s... ) with rationales and explanations. I don't like the overall Unity L&F but I can't argue that it has at least been designed with some semblance of sanity.

It is fairly a uncommon thing in Linux desktop UI. I don't find anything similar for KDE 4 for instance.

It's absolutely fine to do experimental things. But, when you do, own it. Be upfront about the status and give users who disagree with the experiment an easy way out (like Apple does). Then everybody can be happy.
