[Mono-list] Not implemented exceptions in Getters

Git blame shows Marek Safar added those properties.  They are needed for
.NET 4.0 compatibility, but since mono does not support code access
security, they can't really be supported.  The argument could be made for
these to return false since everything running under mono essentially runs
as fully trusted and nothing gets special treatment as "security critical"
code.  Code access security is not implemented, but then at least these
properties could be.

To solve your immediate problem, you could provide a custom
IContractResolver and tell it to ignore get-only properties, which would
cover these that aren't implemented.  Chances are good if you're
serializing types you can't control, you'll eventually need this sort of
customization anyway.  See here for an example:
