Now things get complex for those not "inside" COM terms.

Yeah, I'm wondering if it's going to be a case of "too much information" for folks there. There's a segment of the PB developer community that you know are (or will be) just struggling with basic OOP concepts like classes, properties, methods, etc. Throwing automation, vtable interfaces and monikers in the mix may be a case of information overload and they just walk away, convinced that all of this "stuff" is just too complicated for them. We'll see, I suppose.

Bob is spending a lot of time introducing terms used in creating PowerObjects.

Maybe this way they will begin to understand that all this is about COM, not OOP. COM classes can be used to do some OOP, but they have encapsulation and single inheritance, not multiple inheritance and polymorphism, not multiple constructors and operators overloading.
