[Mono-list] Mono as a Server Platform

That chunk of 'System.Reflection.*' things at the top of each
class-status page are missing attributes (as indicated by the red cross
and the '[]'s). They are assembly-level attributes that are 'attributed'
in the Microsoft DLL but are missing in the Mono version.

The System.Reflection attributes themselves are defined in the 'corlib'
assembly, but they're not listed in corlib's class-status page under the
System.Reflection namespace because they are themselves complete.

In fact, I am little confused by the Class status page on mono web site.
For every class portion(e.g. System.Data, System.XML),
System.Reflection.* is always listed there, I don't know why place them
before it.

I think it's more pratical to take mono as a Linux Server Platform, then
try to expand it to desktop. I have heard several companies that want to
use mono as its server side platform, and take Windows .NET as client
side platform(for C/S application).
