Rob Relyea writes about some changes that the Avalon team is considering to the XAML syntax.  Scott and I got into some heated discussions with the team when we were first introduced to XAML at a VSIP lab. 

I am glad they are thinking about changing the "*Bind" syntax to be more extensible.  I see this as an area where ISVs can modify or improve property and data binding in XAML.  

In addition, decoupling XAML from the presentation framework would help make it a reusable object graph persistence framework that we might be interested in for some future product scenarios we're thinking about.
