Yes.  I've always thought that SVG will take the WYSIWYG market, if
Microsoft ever adopts it.  That means saying goodbye to its accessibilty
claims, as I cannot believe people will author it for a sensible reading
order or even for clean text extraction.  It's heritage is PDF.

My impression is that XForms is dead in the real world and this niche
is being taken by ASP.NET, for in house systems, with no indication
of a move out of HTML for public systems (although they will move to
ASP.NET if the public can be convinced there is no security risk and
businesses assume that there is nothing but Windows that matters).
