Your suggestion sounds (and is) very reasonable. To my regret, to avoid making things twice (and this way causing troubles with backwards compatibility for you guys), we need to wait for some official third-party control support for the ASP.NET MVC
framework. What I mean is that the framework should provide an easy way for a control to cover at least the basic scenarios without making the pure usage of the control a headache.
We're actively monitoring the ASP.NET MVC
framework development and I hope we will be able to have something soon.
