jQuery to be a Standard Visual Studio library

It appears that the ASP.Net team has decided to pull in jQuery instead of reinventing the wheel. It will start shipping with future versions of Visual Studio. They are claiming that this is a good supplement to the existing ASP.Net AJAX and Control Toolkit, but I'd say this invalidates a large portion of what used to be Atlas. I wonder if they will start dropping the Atlas way to start going with jQuery. I'd say this is a great move by MS. They were far behind jQuery in terms of development and usage. Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way!

The Scotts posted on this here and here, and here's an opinion from the jQuery side.
