I agree it's a good idea, but that means concentrating on applications like The Gimp, etc. and not trying to radically alter the desktop. Or even trying to develop a "desktop" at all.
I don't use GNOME or KDE as my desktop, but I use and love GNOME, KDE, gtk+ and Qt programs like The Gimp, knode, LibreOffice, Rosegarden, LMMS, Audacity and more.
So yeah! Work on applications and leave the desktop up to XFCE :)
