Not sure what you mean by a "non-browser UI". You need a model, a
layout engine, a composition engine and know-how. Competing with
browser engines is a lot of work.
It is going to be very hard to compete with reusable UI
out the quirks, due to:
1. ease of development
2. ease of modification
3. volume of UI components
4. styling know-how
6. installed base
What you need is a reactive layer that access native data. And
webtech provides the basic building blocks for it, thanks to the
requirements of asm.js/pnacl.
