The problem is it's a totally different development paradigm to the traditional IDE experience we get with VS. I don't think VS's PMs will be willing to make such a radical change, especially given it's a recent development, I think further research needs to go into this.
Also, it falls apart for programming scenarios that can't be broken-down so easily: what about C/C++ where you have a mass of things at the top-level in header files?
I imagine Microsoft might do something like this when it comes to the next software reboot (like they did in 2002 to merge everything under devenv) but I don't expect that to happen for a long time. Until then I guess this'll be a cool toy for indies to play with (like Xgl was before the feature-aneamic DWM came out)
The way I am reading your comment, suggests that you are thinking of this as a replacement for the traditional IDE, rather than an extension to the environment.
The Architectural components, in 2010, interact with the environment in much the same way as how I would envision the code bubble paradigm would.
Or am I misinterpreting your statements?
