Are you suggesting something more akin to the SWT implementation on Java? Where native widgets are used when possible, and when not a managed implementation is done?

Well, that you are asking is that Microsoft have done for SWF, a light
wrapper on the Win32 API (including controls). 

To archive what you want you will need a new SWF implementation, cannot
be done with the current model or at least easily.

System Colors and MWF  are in our TODO list... we have not started on
