I don't now if I understand correctely the ideia, but mono Remoting from a Linux box to a Windows box and importing the  COM component in the Windows box wouldn't do what you want?

I don't want to emulate COM and/or make Linux apps talk suing DCE-RPC to DCOM.

My main intention in here is to simply allow ASP.NET programs that access COM objects to run on Linux under Apache2, Mod_Mono and Mono. That's it.

Instead of emulating the environment I simply delegate it to the Windows machine.

Be aware that Greg Turner is working on a DCOM implementation for Wine. He has some initial tests running (not just DCOM but binary 
compatible to Windows).

One of the problems he identified was the fact that a number of Linux programs provide DCE-RPC services on Linux: Samba (as the oldes and most advanced program), DCE-RPC itself and DCOM. This mess would 
require some kind of DCE-RPC "portmapper" to sort out.
