I suggest you ...

Add an AcceptsTab property to RichEditBox

In previous UI frameworks, there was a property on RichTextBox that allowed the control to handle tab presses as content to include in the rich text contained in the control. There is no comparable property for the Metro-style RichEditBox. This means developers have to roll their own tab-handling code. It would be great if you could include this into this control so that this common task could be handled without developers doing it themselves.
