The COM interface itself is part of the OS.  Much like DND.

Yes, like the DLL interface

Sigh.  No, not like the DLL interface.  COM is implemented in 2 system
libraries (depending on the Windows version): compobj.dll and
ole32.dll.  So it's like any other system call, which Emacs clearly
does use.

Isn't that like saying that dynamic loading of libraries is implemented in the system call dlopen, and that is like any other system call? The only thing that is special with COM is the object layout and predefined interfaces, otherwise it is like dynamic loading of libraries. I've done COM-objects but not ActiveX, but I don't think the difference is that great.
