We will still have to see what happens with the existing API incompatibilities. Networking error codes, various WIMP extensions as well as the stuff mentioned above lead developers to cater for both or ignore both. There is also no mention of time scale.

To put my rose tinted spectacles on for a moment, I'll bet that both parties aren't 100% sure themselves how this is going to be done nor how long it will take and how many incompatibilities can be removed before the price/time/benefit ratio becomes too expensive for the small gain it will give.

However an effort like this is appreciated. Anything that aids developers for the platform is bound to be a benefit.
