Brad Frost argues for a Global Design System, a collection of aesthetics- and technology-agnostic common UI components. In his opinion, this could be a great resource that saves the design and development communities millions of hours of wasted time.
On reflection, at least in my eyes, this is a great idea, especially when you consider the accessibility and usability benefits.
However, given the sheer size of this task, it is unlikely to be implemented in the near future.
