With the icon preview I think you are right, it would be probably cool 
if Inkscape would change the UI a bit and show the icon preview for a 
selection, group or certain area.

I don't think the positioning matters - he uses a template with some 
rectangles standing for the variously sized canvases and all the 
positioning is relative to those.
