As Robert Jordan mentioned, Mono doesn't provide a C++/CLI compiler, so "C++ namespaces" are rather beside the point.

Even if Mono did have a C++/CLI compiler, you'd still be out of luck as C# can only (easily) interact with assemblies (i.e. a C++/CLI project generating a .dll), which you said you didn't want to generate, so even if you were solely on Microsoft .NET (which has C++/CLI support) you'd be up the creek.
