Some shops clinch on to System.Reflection.Emit, 'cos of familiarity. Would it be possible to have an implementation of those interfaces, that behind the scenes invokes the more powerful CCI counterparts? (I guess so, then the question is whether someone has been working on that)

I don't think it is possible to do a 100% faithful implementation of System.Reflection(.Emit) using CCI. You can get close, but some things will be hard to implement.

I am not aware of anyone working on that, nor am I quite convinced that it is a particularly useful thing to be working on.
