I suggest you ...

i suggest you create a project template for XAML/Typescript and not just HTML/Typescript

I suggest the following three items:
A. You provide a project template for XAML/Typescript instead of HTML/Typescript. The XAML should be transpiled to HTML as the typescript is transpiled to javascript. Developers can either work with the XAML view window or the HTML view window depending on which one they are comfortable with. that way MS developers coming from wpf/Silverlight are happy and new open source developers coming from HTML are happy.
B. You should create RIA services for XAML/Typescript just as you had in Silverlight/c#/vb. And you will be forgiven for leading developers to Silverlight and killing it.
C. you should provide a compilation switch to either transpile Typescript to JavaScript or to .net IL. that way, typescript becomes the bridge and one could actually Compile C# or VB to IL and reverse that from IL to Typescript which already transpiles to JavaScript. in essence, C#/VB can go directly to javascript once this bridge is established, providing you options for the web like:
XAML/typescript, HTML/Typescript, HTML/C#/VB etc at no additional cost. I expect Roslyn at least to achieve this last point. but the first two points should be achieved immediately.

Thanks.
