Am I the only one here who sees this as mixing apples and oranges?  What
does this have to do with web accessibility?  Outside of the fact that
Microsoft is talking about making elements of the UI (User Interface) more
readily available to Windows applications, what does this have to do with
"web content", Macintosh, Linux or any other operating system.  This sounds
more like stuff for code wranglers of the C++ variety.

Check your anti-Microsoft bias at the door please...
