Well I would welcome a Cairo-Java2D implementation, although I don't
see many benefits. However choice is never a bad idea if its offered
for free.
If you don't plan to do it ... its the usual problem with OSS
projects: Many people telling others what they should do, but only a
few writing code. Sorry for beeing not friendly ;)

Yes Cairo supports both platforms, but performance differs a lot on
different platforms, except if you use software-rendering which is not
something desireable.
