My intention was that it should be possible (and relatively easy) to 
write cross-platform widgets which would hook into the WF2 
implementation in any browser that supported WF2.

Cross-browser basically means vanilla javascript (and DOM level 0.5) - 
no htc, xbl, scriptlets or other browser-specific extension mechanisms, 
as cool as they may be. (Of course an extension model should not exclude 
people from using platform-specific extensions if they wish.)
