It is worthwhile:

o  To support an effort to create a standard for an object-framework 
that is componentized, incrementally extensible, and competitive at the 
level of the components

o  To support standard interfaces into this framework that ensure 
correct and testable property handling without requiring a reference 

o  To create a conformance test suite that enables developers to 
know with certainty the level(s) to which they conform to the 
framework and any data or procedural language it supports.

o  To create sample implementations for this framework which enable 
the core framework containers and components to be shared

o  To pick a set of core languages which are to be supported by 
all conforming implementations of the object framework

Using your collective experience with HTML, XML, VRML, DOM, XSL, XLL, 
object-centric implementations with middleware standards, you can do 
this.  Or you can work with Microsoft to complete its work toward 
that end.
