Personally, I don't like to use the frameworks (jquery,sencha, etc...).
Anyone else feel the same way? Maybe a small group of us could create a UI toolkit for the non-framework developers? I'm willing to put some time into this once I get a playbook in my hand and have a chance to look at what RIM has done for the home brewed apps on the device.

If your app is larger than something really simple it barely makes sense anymore NOT to use a framework. Not necessarily a whole GUI toolkit but I'd strongly recommend to at least use a framework like plain JQuery, YUI, Dojo, Prototype.js etc. because it really helps a lot.
With UI frameworks it really depends on preference and also on what you're doing. I used JQuery Mobile in two apps but only plain JQuery with a custom made GUI in another. I wouldn't want to use nothing at all. At the very bare minimum I'd use a DOM manipulation library. Without one your code gets a lot more verbose.
Of course this is all just opinion...
