I believe that the set of supported languages in which you can
write applications for the DotGNU platform should definately
include C and C++, and one of the big open questions is how to
best achieve this.  Compiling (directly or indirectly) to IL
may or may not be the best strategy.

Why compile Melody to *two* bytecode formats???  Sounds like
unneccessary effort in terms of compiler code that would need to
be written and maintained!?
