Wouldn't it be even better if there was a 1:1:1 mapping between an XML representation, an EMF model, and SWT widgets? This would satisfy people who don't want to have double the number of objects at runtime, but also enable all the cool things you can do with EMF at development time with respect to tools that operate on EMF objects.
Dave Carver offered help producing a schema for XWT so that we could generate an EMF model for it. See also the bug opened by Dave: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=260289
