Touch/Mouse really wasn't the need. I found use collisions to determine overlapping to create GUI Panels by pinning objects based on overlap.
Is SpriteFont overlapping 9Patch then Pin SpriteFont to 9Patch.
That way I have easily created GUI panels. Easy for drag/drop, sliding etc. However I have a work around and am not blocked. It would just be more convenient. I also don't use Thirdparty plugins for any low level sharing tools. I use thirdparty plugins for putting together projects. That way if I give out the GUI tool set I know that others will have no need to download a plugin they don't want.
