Is anyone building new unitframes around the fact that nameplates are now real unitframes with their own unitids?

I thought of making a new nameplate addon where nameplates and normal unitframes interfact. You could fade certain unitframes away (like target or party) if there are nameplates on screen that stand for the same unit.

I tanked my first instance with the default nameplates this weekend. Some nameplate settings are just horrible. I need to rewrite some of that.

What do you think is the best approach to adjust the current Blizzard nameplates? Is writing a new addon worth it or is styling enough (if possible). Can one even disable the current Blizzard nameplates? Probably not fully since you need the position for the frame.
