Do you have the same user-demand for the style metadata?  What are the real-world use cases for this?  I can't pretend to understand the style definition language, but I haven't typically seen this requirement for visualization elements.
MapGuide is fast and powerful software, but it is also getting a reputation for being large and complex.  I don't think that we want to go the way of GML; massive functionality with relatively few users.  I'd also hate to think that MapGuide would require someone to hire a consultant in order to generate nice maps.
