Not suggesting you have, and I also really appreciate the IDL work.
What needs to be done (IMHO) is :

a). Generate the stub code (that's the easy part).
b). Merge the stub code onto the existing backends.
That's the ugly and hard part. You already showed us
how to do it for the msdfs pipe - it just needs time
and effort to do it for the other pipes. My personal
favourite to do next is the svrsvc pipe - it's a matter
of time and resources, everyone is a little crazy
right now with all the coverity fixes :-).
