They can't patent XAML. There is too much well-documented and publically
available prior art. There is an ISO Standard for application
languages of that type. Also, given that neither XAML nor XUL
acknowledge that standard and assuming that neither group is falsifying
their history, XAML, XUL and ISMID pass Tim Berners-Lee's principle
of independent invention. That validates the language design.

return on investment.
