Why there is no Extreme GUI SWT/JFace makeover?

In the yesterdays JavaOne Session, the look and feel as well as the behavior of a "corporate" application was significanlty changed and improved. Great effects, which not only look great, but also improve the reusability. I never saw similar session about SWT/Jface or any other conference, did I overlooked something? Is it to early, or SWT/JFace applications just don't need to be improved? :-)
Today was another good session, where a great image processing application called "Imagery" was presented. The interesting thing about this: it was an OSGI/Spring based framework called SPAR with Swing frontend. The reason for the uncommon mix: the presenter was not aware of Netbeans RCP and with SWT custom components are supposed to be harder to build.
