Hey guys, just finished up updating my UI for MOP. Very clean, concise, and works excellent in PvE/PvP.
Very uncluttered, full buff/debuff timers with Forte, set up already for new abilities/dispatch procs, etc.
Weakauras is the main contributor, providing combo points, Blade Flurry tracking, tracking for every major defensive Cooldown in PvP on your target with time remaining, and execute phase. Also added in fun 3d animated Auras for major cooldowns on the player frames.
Raid frames provided by Vuhdo.
Multiple clean KgPanels make the skeleton of the UI, with hidden KgPanels which appear on mouseover for Poison Tab, Mount/Professions, and Micro Menu.
The PvP major Buff/Debuff timer shows to the right of target frame. Icon with time remaining on it, and plays a small sound to alert you. Pretty much any Major Defensive/Offensive CD you'll need to know about your target.
(Example: Evasion on myself)
Tidyplates is set up so you can see your relevant PvP Debuffs on nameplates, even if you aren't targeting them currently. CS, KS, Blind, Garrote, Dismantle, Gouge, Hemo Dot, etc. Tracks on multiple units.
Examples of the animated aura frame for Shadow Dance (there's one for AR and Vendetta also):
There are hidden KgPanels attached to Bartender bars which appear on mouseover for Poisons, Mount/Professions tab, and MicroMenu.

I like the original WoW inteface, so i kept trying to make it look similar, but cleaner.

I track most of my things with Weak Auras, as you can see. And in the start of the fight it looks rather messy. To the left are my CDs and TotT and to the right are my SnD and Rupture. In middle my Revealing Strike. I love comergy!

I use Forte Xorcist to track the timer of SnD, RvS, Rupture, deep insight and Adrenaline rush(when its on).
The little gray icons gives me a fast way to see how long the cooldown is on my CDs, and my Xorcist bar shows it in seconds. Moar Auras for my Insight and Shadows of the Destroyer.

DAAAAAM hahah, for me I just have a gong sound play over power auras :P, But Power auras has been really shitty atm with lag bugs
I've also found from Raiding a lot that if you have them specific colors, they can get drowned out on some encounters due to the color of the locale. In ICC, I had to change my Combo Point colors because of this; they ended up matching the backgrounds of the boss fights, and it was distracting.
As for colors, you can solve the problem by putting a decent opaque background around them - this way they will be more visible and the actual color of them will be less important. For your case a black 1px border should be enough.
Huge chat, standard minimap and buffs/debuffs which occupy a lot of space, humongous damage numbers.
A lot of room for improvement, standard positions for player/target frames are fine but a unitframes addon will make them smaller/better hence again more free space to use.
Cannot link a rogue image because if race change in progress XD but this DK shot should suffice - i'm playing on 1366, anyway even if i have a very small screen, the UI isn't cluttered.
I downloaded your whole blkui thing, I like it a lot. All I changed was making unit frames show percent health and current. And a mail Addon was missing to collect all mail in one click.
Vuhdo is the raid frames right? Is there anyway to make that show a little icon for raid or dungeon role?
There are a lot of options, go take a look and make experiments
