How can we improve the Windows Phone dev platform?

Improve testability of the platform

There are a number of factors preventing TDD and BDD in the current release:

* Pure logic unit tests can't be run directly in Visual Studio using MSTest
* Only available testing library is a link on Jeff Wilcox's blog (at least add it to the WP Toolkit)
* No support for running the testing framework in a CI environment
* No UI automation support
* SDK cannot be installed on a build server (without modification, which is not supported)
* SDK installs Visual Studio (not possible to install only emulator + libraries)

Any improvement here would be greatly appreciated.
