Thanks for this feedback, this is an area that is being discussed on how we might improve the overall XAML verbosity syntax as well as make this easier for customers of ISV controls.

If you aspire to see UWP as a platform-independent interface framework, this would have to be done very carefully. Initially, it would tie UWP to the Edge browser, which only exists on the Windows 10 family of OS's. It could be carefully architected, however, to provide adapters to other web engines.
This would be very welcome. It would be interesting to see what cross-platform support this could lead to. Also it would be interesting to see how long this YAMSDAPI (yet another Microsoft DOM API) would live on. ;-)
And I would also suggest that instead of rendering to HTML Canvas, to render to WebGL to get the hardware accelerated goodness.

Currently being spec’ed out.
Additionally, WinRT Xaml REALLY needs x:Type and support for TypeConverter's, which WinRT also doesn't have yet.
