Microsoft spoke about this at CSUN, and a brief item appears in the 
proceedings:
http://www.csun.edu/cod/conf/2005/proceedings/2428.htm

I didn't hear the word Avalon, but I did hear "UI Automation." Except 
that when you say it fast it comes out as "UI-tomation." I don't see 
anything on the Microsoft website, but a quick google shows they are 
talking about it at various conferences.

The word is, there will be no more screen scraping. No more hacking the 
interface to dig out clues. All info will come through UI Automation, 
and it will be so valuable for automated testing that developers will 
want to use it.
