can we expect that System.ComponentModel.Composition.Initilization
will be availble for non SL app on the 4.0 release (currently i don't see it on the RC)?

CompositionInitializer and CompositionHost.Initialize are great concept that can
be useful under non SL application and it will keep the API more coherent between SL and none SL.

Unfortunately we will not be shipping CompositionInitializer / Host as part of .NET 4.0. .NET 4.0 and SL are on different ship cycles and the desktop locked long before we had the functionality in SL. We will do an OOB release on codeplex for desktop. I currently have an early version on my SkyDrive, but we will get bits updated for codeplex. The plan is to role CI into the desktop in the future.
