Stand Alone Silverlight?

So far I have found two examples of a stand alone strategy for Silverlight.

Silverlight: Running standalone full trust applications

How to make Silverlight be AiR?

Both pretty much use the same method by employing MSHTA with an *.hta file.(also achieving full trust for the application)

The trouble is these solutions are not a cross platform answer, and I don't see the benefit this would bring over a WPF click once app or an xbap application.  At least its possible.  Maybe Microsoft will find it beneficial to provide an attractive offline mode for Silverlight apps.

I do not think, that it's something in MS agenda to make SL to be stand alone application. Silverlight designed to be Rich Internet Application, WPF is Rich Client Application, XBAP is only a way (not very successful) to be between them.

I don't disagree. But I would rather stay a MS developer and have something deployable to Linux and Mac.
