That are just 14 bugs of which a couple are RFEs. Strange that most bugs 
are pretty old (2 years or older). Are people working on fixing these 
things, or is remote xul not one of the priorities of mozilla.org?

A real pity that it doesn't seem to catch on yet.
I guess xul needs a killer app implementation first, such as webmail. 
Yahoo recently bought a webmail company consisting of only 10 people 
(oddpost) which offered a kind of native interface for 30M$ with 
technology based on DHTML 
http://slashdot.org/articles/04/07/14/0011208.shtml?tid=126&tid=137&tid=215&tid=217&tid=95

So I guess the industry has a large interest in xul kind of technology
