As far as I know, there was no official documentation or announcement that
EFL is an *OFFICIAL* Tizen native toolkit.
Even we can still use EFL for native applications and some Tizen apps
already use EFL[1], Tizen SDK 1.0 and 2.0 alpha support ONLY web
application development as of now[2].

According to the Tizen Conference 2012 keynote[3] and Korea Linux Forum
2012[4][5], Tizen 2.0 will introduce the native APIs.
Until there will be an official announcement, we should wait :(
