Maybe you should update the home page at http://www.w3.org/2006/appformats/

The first sentence that one can read is:

"This deliverable should be based on an existing application/UI format, such
as Mozilla's XUL, Microsoft's XAML, Macromedia's MXML or Laszlo Systems'
LZX, provided the owners of the format are willing to contribute. The format
should allow embedded program code. This format, combined with the
deliverables below and existing technologies including XHTML, CSS, XForms,
SVG and SMIL, should provide a strong basis for rich client application
development."

In the HTML 5 spec, Ian Hickson says:

"For sophisticated cross-platform applications, there already exist several
proprietary solutions (such as Mozilla's XUL and Macromedia's Flash). These
solutions are evolving faster than any standards process could follow, and
the requirements are evolving even faster. These systems are also
significantly more complicated to specify, and are orders of magnitude more
difficult to achieve interoperability with, than the solutions described in
this document."

And this last sentence should be right, as there is not document available
about the UI format. mentionned above.
