Microsoft Research solving bad writing?

Jason posted this over at TUMW. Microsoft Research in Beijing have developed software that can process handwritten text (in English only, at this point), and clean it up, making it neater and easier to read. It's still a research project and not yet available as a consumer application. This research could have some pretty exciting potential for the Tablet PC platform. I know it would certainly help me read some of the hastily scrawled e-mail messages, OneNote pages, and Messenger Live notes I get from my Tablet PC-toting buddies.
