Windows RT Limitations

While working on Oxygene august and the august release I came across some real oddities in the WinRT runtime. Microsoft dropped like 50% of the apis and must have been working on the basis of "what's the bare minimum". There's no TypedReference (which is used for classic with support). There's no way to determine if a type is an Enum or not. Now I get the idea of dropping non-generic list types and other things that are not needed anymore, but the way reflection was stripped down makes it a lot less powerful.
