No, I think the issue with a standard widget kit would be this; you would have the majority of the companies support it, then Microsoft would want to embrace and extend it.

The best alternative, however, it GTK and GTKmm - although not perfect, I am sure with some decent money thrown at it, it can be cleaned up, better documented, and a nicer RAD tool can be developed for it.
