Certainly one can use them.  One can implement the server side
interface to support the MS implementation (e.g. a custom 
implementation of System.Web.Host), of which Cassini and several
other containers are nice examples.

We would be ill advised to actually implement those MS dot net
ourselves, System.Web.Services etc...

Mono isn't based in the US so they aren't concerned, but care
enough about their US users to set those implementations aside
in a separate package.  If we targeted those, perhaps that
could be a problem, perhaps not.  But it sounds like Castle
does much more than that, and any thunks into MS's, mono's
or another cli and it's interfaces will be incidental.
