I'm just starting to explore SIlverlight 5 and am going through the new features trying to decide what to look at first!  Silverlight 5 is boasting a really nice feature that is familiar to people who develop Dynamic Data, WPF, and Prism-based Silverlight applications - typed DataTemplates.  This feature will allow you to specify the DataTemplate used to display data based on its type.  The classic example is the display a collection of Person objects where the actual objects are of various types deriving from Person (e.g. Manager, Employee, Student, etc.) and a different layout is desired for each subtype.  I'm going to keep digging, but I may do a full post on this later...
