Not AFAICS.  Look at all the places where REF*ID is taken as an argument 
which are conditional on CINTERFACE, e.g. later in Wine's guiddef.h, I 
don't think the CINTERFACE IsEqualGUID is going to work with C++ REF*ID 
types.  Also, you won't be able to test equality with C++ types without 
the operators.

Look also at mingw-w64's shobjidl.h (among others); the CINTERFACE 
QueryInterface vfuncs take REF*ID arguments, are those going to compile 
with C++ REF*ID?  I'm sure I could find many more examples, but if you 
look at all the 183 headers which use CINTERFACE, most (all?) of which 
use REF*ID types, doesn't it make sense that REF*ID must be C types if
