The icall removal patch is ok.

The second one is tricky. Do we really want to completely disable COM
support when running under the sandbox?
It does make sense for moonlight, but not for other users of coreclr.

I believe we should only fail COM for non-platform assemblies which has the
same result for moonlight but won't
bite future users of the sandbox code.
