What if the compiler together with the native code could produce a refined metadata file with its IL instructions stripped off, similar to what is done in the Windows Runtime.

I'm thinking that a loader could then at runtime load and link different modules. This could be a useful system service.

Any thoughts on this? How much knowledge is required to implement such a thing?

It's a good idea for the future, but first we need to finish the current work on the compiler that needs to be done
