I'm not proposing we use that pattern, but wanted everyone to simply be aware of that. If a spec is created (I'm _not_ volunteering here), then I'd hope it would be compatible with the Win8 promise design.

It's probably me being incompetent, but I'm having a world of trouble finding documentation for this on Microsoft's web site. I'm probably missing a magical keyword, "Windows 8" isn't even a topic on MSDN. Would you mind linking to the above? I've been meaning to look at the approaches you've taken there as they seem to be very interesting.

Concerning promises, and without in any way taking the risk that you'll end up editing a potential promises specification, do you think that they'd be a better approach than what we have now (which isn't really consistent)?
