Thanks for sharing the screenshots. Let me comment as per your change list:
Points 1 and 2 are related to moving some functionality from the status bar to the main logo. This is interesting but I am not sure if this would improve overall usability of the UI. Have you created a application with the current changes in Roo trunk yet? While these changes are subtle I think the status bar is a better location for the theme and language selectors now that there is a little more space.

Point 4 is interesting as we already have a command which lets you change property files conveniently:
I am sure you were not aware of this command yet. The new documentation guide now has a reference section for all commands in the appendix. So I guess there is no need for your new command after all.
