          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.

          Perhaps, there could also be use of the System.Dynamic namespaces to access all of the DOM and JavaScript objects in the DOM, although there should still be strong-typed interfaces for the well-known DOM objects (<div>, <br>, <span>, etc.).

          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.

            I like the idea of making this strategic for Windows, since the apps would run better on Microsoft platforms (as .NET vs JavaScript).

                Additionally, WinRT Xaml REALLY needs x:Type and support for TypeConverter's, which WinRT also doesn't have yet.
