Maybe you can talk to this guy over at MyXAML (http://www.myxaml.com/) it
looks like he is making an Open Source compiler for XAML that converts the
XML into .Net interfaces.

Subject: [Mono-list] XAML Support ???

Seeing that the Mono project is coming along very well - I wanted to address
what I feel to be a very important upcoming feature of the .NET Framework,
XAML.  For those of you that do not know, XAML (pronounce as "zamel") is
much like Mozilla's XUL with some distinct differences.

o  XAML tags map directly to .NET classes.
o  XAML files can be compiled.
o  XAML will be native to Longhorn's IE7 browser. 
o  XAML has the ability to let someone embed code within it :( 

With the above listed, XAML will greatly blur the line between what people
perceive as an OS application and a web application.

Has there being any talk of supporting XAML and if so, will this also be
implemented in Mozilla so that Linux (and even Windows if you were to run
the Mozilla browser on Windows) can reap the benefits of XAML?

I would greatly like to help in development and/or help organize development
the implemention of XAML -NOW-.  Let's not what until after the fact :)
