    Having already done this once, I found the hardest part was trying to take Windows Azure Storage linked into the ASP.NET project linked into .NET ria services so the silverlight app could access it.  Doing any one part of that wasnt too tough, but trying to mix the technologies together (especialy given that there is no cloud based domain service so you have to kind of write your own).

    I fear alot of people are going to skip a few steps and access the windows azure storage directly from the silverlight client, and thats just totaly insecure.

    Actually, I am not going to use .NET RIA Services.  I am going to create a RESTful WCF service and consume it.  With regards to going directly to table storage, I do not believe that is possible with the current Silverlight Bits.  I don't think SL allows you to add an Authorization HTTP header which is required to access table storage.
