To better understand the problem with IDL mapping and concrete
implementation in C++ here is a link to the DOM C++ implementation in
Mozilla. Vidur had to translate the IDL interface definition into XPCOM for
a _concrete_ DOM implementation in a browser. The binary interface could be
created with most C++ compilers. In fact, the XPCOM spec is under stress
test on several platforms. XPCOM could be mapped easily to DCOM on windows
and still be XPCOM on other platforms (actually running on OS2 and Linux).
For more info see the link:

The Mozilla DOM module is an independant module that can be used by any
application. We are working now on a specification paper for other DOM
implementations using a XPCOM binary signature implementation. Pacakging in
either dll or shared library will be discussed too.
