We are considering providing an open source BlackBerry 10 UI built on top of Stage3D. Not open sourcing the existing AIR controls, but a Stage3D version of the BB10 controls.

We haven't seen many Stage3D UI frameworks out there outside of games/starling (aka Feathers). So we're not sure if it's something the community would be interested in. It's something that we've been experimenting with and figured it would be better served out in the community than built into the OS.
What about a Feathers theme for all people currently using Starling/Feathers?

As long as the UI framwork or BB themes don't hold up Stage3D support... Most Stage3D apps have their own UI framework anyway.
No worries there.... The UI framework is some experimental code that we have sitting on the side that we figured we would share and collaborate on once Stage3D is available to everyone

So you are saying that we would get stage3D before we have a UI framework to use?
Likely at the same time.. there's no point in making a UI framework available until the runtime supports it
