This is really interesting, and it sounds like an enormous amount of work.
About a year ago, I was getting familiar with MIDI (a computer music format), and there was a company that was promoting a DirectX COM interface standard for creating what is known as a software synthesizer (which could process MIDI messages into sound). This component would be loaded into an application that would stream MIDI messages (which comprised a musical composition) to the synthesizer component, the COM interface would process the MIDI format and return a stream of what was essentially a continuous stream of WAVE format digital signals, which the application would then send to its own audio driver. Pretty complicated stuff. Anyway, the company (Cakewalk) that develops the music software, offers developers an SDK package (including source code for both minmal server and compatible client, and lots of html documentation) demonstrating the utility of the server component and the interface that the COM In-Process server must present to the Executable, and all the associated data structures, interfaces, callbacks, and related mechanisms required to make the whole thing work.
Admittedly, it is probably more complicated that what you are suggesting. But, the point is that the COM structure must be provided and thoroughly tested, and the documentation must be clear to the client developer, before they can even begin to design a component that will interface with your server correctly.
In the above mentioned example, I had to study the source code for several weeks before I completely understood how it worked, and especially, how the server-client connections were implemented. What you realize is that, the more complex the code model is, the more difficult it is to get it to work.
