Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical has unveiled a complete branding overhaul, redesigning everything from the Ubuntu website to its logos and marketing material. However, what interests me more are the new Gtk+ themes, and even then, I'm not interested in the colour choices and the like. No - what stood out to me right away was not the theme itself - but the placement of the titlebar widgets.

The menu is not themed by metacity, but GTK, so, yes, it will look strange for non gnome apps

It's not that hard to make a colour theme for Qt and others to match the titlebar. If they do their job half right, it will look OK.

Actually DataPath is correct. The WM draws the titlebar so any app (GTK, QT3 or 4, or even WINE...) built for any DM (GNOME, KDE3 or 4, etc) will have the same title bar.

You can change the WM in with fusion-icon if you don't like the titlebar - though obviously the easier way is to keep Metacity and change the titlebar in whatever settings app GNOME has for changing themes.
