I'd like to see a good semantic system that'd make it easy to map to actual controls individual to the platform and apply styling.

The aforementioned Eto.Forms is some kind of wrapper that allows you to design your GUI and run the same code on iOS, Mac OSX, Linux GTK# 2 or 3, and Windows.Forms and WPF. I say again, I haven't used it yet and can't advocate it right now - but it's the right idea going in the right direction. Just hope to have more than one option to compare.
