Whilst Blu-Ray and HD-DVD use the same compression schemes (good), the underlying programming languages used to drive the things are completely different. So whoever took on this task would essentially have to create their own chipsets from the ground up that would run both Blu-Ray's BD-J and Microsoft's iHD.
