I do not think the XML-based version makes sense anymore. It's too complex  
and has always felt a bit awkward. A set of extensions to HTML or CSS  
would make more sense. I really quite liked the idea of using CSS and  
having some way of writing markup in CSS for this. Hopefully we can  
explore that somewhat.

So far that is just a bunch of use cases, not really a proposal, but I  
really like how they are targeted at addressing issues such as form  
control styling. That is something authors want to see addressed, and was  
initially deferred to XBL3 or some such.
