Have you looked at FOA [1]?  The project itself appears dead, but it may
give you some ideas of what to do or not do.

A UI framework based on Java Swing/Java2D/AWT would be the most natural
fit since you could then use FOP's AWTRenderer [2] so you can show the
formatted pages in the UI or, if you are making a transform designer
rather than styling single documents, with some more work you could do
things like make FOP render images of page masters as you modify their
settings.
