How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

"TextTransform" property in Xaml, like with CSS

As with CSS, it would be very useful if we could set text based framework elements to be UPPERCASE, lowercase, Title Case, etc with a TextTransform property in Xaml.

This would eliminate the need to create a string converter, and allow the transformation of text which is not added through data binding.

An example of it in use would be:
<TextBlock Foreground="White" Text="My Application" TextTransform="Upper" />

<Button Content="cancel" TextTransform="Sentence" />

<TextBox TextTransform="Lower" Text="{TemplateBinding Text}" />
