I might be too naive here, but from what I know about .NET there is 
hardly anything that is not covered by prior art, either from the 
TAL people or various other groups that have worked on "wide" 
intermediate representations before (to a certain degree, that even 
includes us at UCI).

Certainly UNCOL is prior art? :-)
