You are missing the point, I think.
The idea is not to create a new widgetset.
Using some kind of 'external' declarations would enable you to use Adobe Air,
ExtJS, Node.js, Jquery, Kendo UI, node-webkit, Dojo or whatever you see fit.
I am not making any assumptions on that.
But, and this is what I miss in all other attempts mentioned here:
I want to be able to program the browser WITHOUT necessarily having an application server running on a webserver.
