Hell, we couldn't even do it on WP7*, which at least still used a CE kernel. WP8 uses an NT kernel.
Some kind of virtualization might work, but don't count on it. That's a long way off if it ever happens at all.
* OK, there was a program that aimed to allow running WinMo apps on WP7, but so far as I know, it was never released.
Most devices? Are you implying there is a device or two that does exist?

The keyboard was super tiny, and the menus were made for you to tap your stylus at.
I joined XDA when I owned the Motorizr Z3 and customized that tiny little thing and you bring up excellent points. The best resistive screen device I've ever owned and in fact still my all time favorite phone was the HTC Touch Pro 2 (Rhodium). HTC with the exception of the HTC Arrival never came out with another device with undoubtedly the best keyboard ever put on a smart phone with maybe the exception of the Blackberrys. Now that HTC is about to release the "Max" and Nokia the Lumia 1520... it boils down to Windows Phone 8 or Android.
