How can we improve the Windows Phone dev platform?

Allow the emulator to simulate phone calls and messages.

There are several certification requirements from Microsoft that are impossible to test without a physical Windows Phone device. The requirements that involve phone calls, text messages, and zune hub music are all impossible to test from within the emulator.

It'd be very convenient for developers without actual devices to test their apps for the certification requirements if everything could actually be tested with the emulator.
