WPF/XBAP and Media Center = Deprecated

Me and my colleagues were planning on developing a application to play a WPF application in the Media Center. I have installed the MCE SDK a year ago on my Developing Image. When checking the MCE development site I came across a post that announced a new SDK version. In the changelog:
“Deprecated Features:
The following platform features have been deprecated with this release:
Hosting for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) browser applications (XBAPs).
The Triple-tap / Soft-keyboard ActiveX control for hosted HTML applications.
Support for using alternative shells to run and host HTML applications.”
Too bad, end of experiment for us, maybe i go to SilverLight 2.0 now ..
