elis, I think you got where I am coming from. If something like this was going to work, this is the way I think it would need to be done. I like the demo site you posted up. The UI looks nice, and good be tailored to Sublime Settings very nice.

In general, with a nice front end like that, and UI mapping included in the plugin, I imagine it could go fairly smoothly. Really, all we would need now, is clearly defined specifications for the UI mapping, and the will to do it.

I like the idea. HTML UIs are greatly configurable and cross-platform (and afaik Sublime does not yet ship with a GUI-building lib for Python). You can parse settings with JS and export them. I don't know how exactly the FileSystem works and I don't know if you can access files on your HDD directly or at all.

I don't have the time for this myself so please, anyone who can complete a task like that (concept, specifications, process, manage tasks (with other people) ...), go for it!
