+I will not block CBOs, unless I overlooked something important.
+But it's still a bad idea to use a feature that doesn't work
+on MS.NET.
+I can only guess why MS dropped the support of generic methods
+in CBOs:
+- they encountered some severe problems with
+  COM+ (EnterpriseServices)
+- IMessage & friends were not changed to expose generic arguments,
+  so writing full interceptor sinks or proxies for CBOs is nearly
+  impossible.
