Support XAML refactoring to UserControl / DataTemplate / ResourceDictionary

It would be grand if you could highlight a block of XAML and refactor it to a User Control, Control Template or Data Template. Alternatively you could promote all attributes in a selected block into a Style in a ResourceDictionary. Isnt XAML a 1st class citizen? Windows 8 team thinks so.

So, does anyone know of a tool that does this ? We have a fairly large theme and need desperatly to bb able to manage it better than the current tools allow.
Yep - that would be awesome.
I agree. This would save a lot of time.
