As lupus said, I am working in this area right now and cleaning up a patch.
However, what I currently have does not support exactly what you are
describing. If you run a managed app or host the mono runtime you will be
able to expose managed objects to unmanaged code as a COM object.
      However, I currently have no plans of exposing managed objects as COM
servers in a standalone manner (i.e. by calling CoCreateInstance).
Basically, I consider that a luxury not a requirement since mono can be
easily hosted (and it raises a few other questions like which version of
mono to use, what library to expose the COM entry points in, registry
entries, etc). I do think you could easily host mono and expose your own
version of CoCreateInstance to do what you need, if necessary.
