Inteoperating smoothly with the rest of the world is very useful.

I fully agree. But there's so much more involved in interoperating smoothly with the rest of the world than Aliens/CObjects, and what's left is very hard to do in a cross-dialect way.

So, having cross-dialect Aliens/CObjects is a nice step, but unfortunately it is still far from being a full solution.
