>     (F) Use XAML
i think i would avoid XAML,  the only reason you're considering using it is
because it is poised to make winForms obsolete, both from the same company, and
the first technology introduced not too long ago. Makes me not want to trust the
second technology. IIRC there is no use made of CSS (could have been changed
since alpha release, haven't looked at it in long time), other technologies
mentioned do allow reuse of CSS. also from a purely aesthetic viewpoint I think
xaml is pretty ugly markup.

most fo processors I've used allow use of svg inline.
if you followed the xforms/svg path, maybe you could have an xsl-fo/svg path as
