I know this is only a patent and is far from making its way into products BUT the fact it exists makes me insanely happy..

I've been screaming loud for the last several months of a world where XAML/ HTML/ DirectX and whatever UI framework comes can exist in the same render UI..

XAML/Dx, Silverlight/XNA has shown how its possible to make a great UX from the combination of two UI stacks..

In my opinion Html/Dx/Xaml combined would be killer, and if MS can deliver this I would be so happy!
