The site http://research.microsoft.com/projects/clrgen/ has already
(since May 2001) a paper on generics in C# and .NET .

The Design and Implementation of Generics for the .NET Common Language

The site says:
"The standard question asked is "will it be in the final release of the
current version C# and VS.NET", and the standard response is "no, but it
may be in a later version".  However the C# team and community are very
willing to receive further feedback on generics."

IMHO, the problem with Mono including generics in C# is that Microsoft
probably will implement them in a future version of .Net so that there is
an incompatibility (either a subtle or a very big one) with Mono.
