What does this have to do with anti-anything?  Our point here is that 
according to their blurb, the web fits in here.  In other words,when authors 
and authoring agents grab hold of this stuff and find they need to code a 
certain way in order to display/render properly in the new world, it may 
well break further cross platform capability.  I am saying this is my fear 
but we are talking about something that is not even close to being released.

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...
