I think what he is saying is that he's happy if you take and check it 
in, but he doesn't want to take any responsibility for maintaining such 
a thing.

The Mozilla thing is Azure. It's really not intended to be a proper 
general purpose drawing library. It is specifically constructed to mesh 
well with the browser's internal drawing model.

Getting the Direct2D backend copied from Mozilla into Cairo would, I 
suspect, be the best bet.
And it would allow us to rationalise our own backends.

But it's a major chunk of work. And open-source Win32 hackers are in 
short supply.
Might make a good Google Summer-of-code project??
