I look forward to seeing the app.  We're starting to use Atlas here, but not for anything spatial yet.  I fully expected the UI improvements, as I'd done some unmanaged AJAX previously, but Atlas sure makes it easy to do.
I think that if you didn't have Oracle Spatial, you could set up web services using the MapGuide FeatureService as your back end.  I'm going to be playing around with that a bit.

It's going pretty good so far.  I have spatial queries that I run as Web
Services so I was willing to try it out.  We use Oracle Spatial here at
work, so I can run Spatial queries and other types of spatial processing
outside of the map.  I basically just grab the xml results from the Web
Services using Atlas and then send those results to the map.  The process of
displaying the results is working some what.  At times, the results display
fine and other times nothing appears.  I'm not sure if it's my code or
Mapguide that is having issues.   I'm thinking (hoping) it might be
Mapguide.  I'm still experimenting a bit. 

  I'm liking the whole AJAX/Atlas world...the constant postbacks got to be
troublesome.  I think the forms and interfaces are a lot nicer for the user. 
I should have some items completed soon, so I'll post the link to the app
when it's ready.
