You are drowning in a glass of water.  Changing the name from a
namespace from Mono to OpenSystem is not a recipe for "clean
interfaces", if anything it is a placebo for an illusion.

Nothing really depends on the runtime.  If something required the
runtime, I am sure we can master the dark art of using an "ifdef" or a
conditional compile setting (as I am sure many more runtimes will come
after Mono and Portable.NET).    

As I told you months ago we are willing to make the class library suit
your needs.  Arguing about names is not getting us anywhere.
