Hi Christian!
This might not be exactly what you want to read, but my workflow (and 
recommendation) is to start your sketch on a piece paper. WYSIWYG bears 
(like in typography in general) the risk of one being attracted by 
ad-hoc possibilities rather than focusing on an organized information 
transfer planing. You do not sketch for pretty-printing paper, do you?
e.g. During my active time increasing the quality of sketches in 
irc://irc.freenode.org/#latex-de I often started setting up a psmatrix 
or at least some sort of makeshift grid for labels, so they do align and 
the viewer intuitively has a sense where to look at in order to get 
destinct informations. Preskeched on some chequered paper you'll hardly 
need to guess the coordinates. You'll just have to compute/keep the 
alignment and read out the rest.
