Simple - people who play multiple games with multiple GMs. If I, as a player, find a layout in MT that works for me, I'm going to become comfortable with it. That's going to make me a better player regardless of whether I'm playing Traveller with Bob, D&D with Frank or GURPS with Mary via MT because I'm not going to have to change how I work with MT. If, however, I have to learn each GMs nuances of their changes to the interface for each game, well, in some cases, I'm sure I'd rather just pass on playing.
Keep in mind, I'm not currently using MT as a player. I'm strictly a GM at this point, however, one of my players may be starting up her own game soon where I will be a player. The thought of her being able to dictate how my MT layout looks seriously bugs me. Not because she's any sort of slacker in that department (she's a gifted artist), but primarily because I have a dual 20" widescreen monitor setup, and she has a single 24" monitor. I really don't see how she could successfully design something that would look good on both mine and hers and keep us both happy without a lot of work.
I do like the idea of skins - but they should be determined by the user. GMs providing and "recommending" skins is fine by me - as long as everything in the interface is where I set it, and I have the ability to choose another if I don't like theirs.
I like the idea of overlays & thumbnails as RPTroll suggested, too.
