My plan from last year was the following:
1) Remove IFDEF SIMULATOR stuff and move SDL code into the target tree so that you can compile rockbox as an app and not a sim. (this was actually completed)
2) Work on actually getting SDL and rockbox to compile on another target (this proved quite difficult for me on Windows CE)
3) Begin platform specific optimizations
IMO the best way to do things is to leave SDL in place entirely, but to put it into the target tree so that new platforms can use it as needed, or reimplement functions as native code if SDL imposes too much overhead or is for some reason unsuitable.
Talking about changing the rockbox GUI is premature. We don't have the basics in place, and we probably won't for a very long time.
