There are two issues here: One is supporting the products of the game engine, and supporting the game builder itself. It's like supporting apps compiled by visual studio 2008 versus supporting Visual Studio 2008 itself.
I don't know about Unity3D, but Unreal 3 is basically working, although it is slow(in dx9, not dx10). Luckily we don't need .NET to run the games :-/
That said, supporting the build tools themselves might be useful for Wine development purposes. When I worked on the DirectX SDK samples I sometimes recompiled some samples to test a few things.
