Exactly how do you want to implement a basically unknown api that doesnt
exist yet now?

as many have said, XAML is not the issue, XAML is a cute feature, the
issue is Avalon. And implementing Avalon at this point without any real,
solid API docs is like asking to spend time on something that will
completely change before it even hits a real beta.

Don't get me wrong, I think implementing Avalon is insanely important,
but *now* is really not the time in my opinion.
