WAP is already dead, as consumers fro WAP services do exist only in minds of 
mobile phones manufacturers.
What does make you thinking that TelCos would install high-speed equipemnt?
There is a world-wide economy slowdown, and everyone trims fat to return 
companies to being profitable.
That's not the time when you can invest billions of dollars in 3G equipment or 
something similiar.

Why do you think that someone would be interested to make such tools?
And other part (potential users/graphic artists) would pay for those tools?
I doubt that next-generation content creator (supporting SVG) from Adobe or 
Corel would be free.
