I'll think over MVC and the layout system and will get back with a
minimal proposal which can be discussed over.
The surface concept I find it useful to deal with drawing in a generic manner.
If there's any flaw, I would like to know it, since I'm already implementing it.

I'm keen to come with a new one, which can be implemented over the
other libraries.

Sure! I can add you to the project in assembla if you want.
