How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Add support for 'XmlnsDefinitionAttribute'

XmlnsDefinitionAttribute is an absolutely great attribute for Control Library developers. It allows the developers of that control library to greatly simplify the xaml by reducing the number of XMLNS declarations they need.
The only way around this is for the control vendor to throw every single class that might be used in XAML (not just controls but other types too), in the same namespace, creating a very ugly unwieldy API to code against.

If you use a 3rd party control library or you're a control library vendor, you should vote for this. It'll save you a lot of typing, looking for controls and types etc.
