If you have a look at the "Fat Panel" version of UI Options, you'll see that we are able to render a very different layout for preferences by reusing the same underlying code. In your case, you may be able to create a variation on the Fat Panel version of UI Options that wraps it with Wizard-like controls (next/previous buttons, etc.) and handles navigation between tabs, etc.

You should be able to produce a new WizardUIOptions flavour that has similar configuration and templates to the Fat Panel version but without the iFrame.
