To be honest I don't see the JSON thing as a real barrier at all, the only point in publishing is to remove another layer of dissembling. 

I'm currently talking with a vendor about their contributing another W3C Widgets implementation to ASF to join the three already there (Wookie, Rave, Cordova). There is interest picking up in automotive, TV and other industries. I got started on a w3 widgets-based "app store" project and then found three others under development in the same vertical market. Its like a stealth spec or something - its only once you start looking you see implementations all over the place. There is even one project that would seem to be thinking of implementing it for vending machines :-D

However, no one I've spoken to has ever complained about the problem being it uses uncool XML, I've just seen it from some guy commenting on Bruce's blog.
