Most of the rough surfaces were dealt with years ago. SVG has integrated 
CSS cleanly, and uses its own graphic model. There is some overlap and 
advantage is continually taken of it.

I very much doubt that a "single object framework" the size of the 
Longhorn stuff will be without roughness.

I have no idea how much CSS VML used. Is VML even still shipped with IE 
6? MS killed it off long before they even started talking about their 
new stuff. I don't know what your constraints are, but Adobe's SVG 
Viewer can be used from IE as a binary behaviour, meaning you can use 
SVG directly in HTML. As always with binary behaviours, the hooking up 
is terribly ugly, but it's doable. You'll get something that can do much 
more than VML-in-HTML but using roughly the same approach.
