You will find all that information on the project page.
In short. Yes, it is (standard) gtk. You will be able to develop you 
code on your desktop and run it there. But much of the 'feel' depends on 
the openmoko theme.
The wiki provides some design guides how to use tabs and how to make 
guis work on a small (high dpi) screen.

gtk is not goung away. (Why do you think so?)
And to my knowledge there is nothing properitary regarding the gtk stuff.
