That's the thing, the standard seems to be that:
 * headers generated from idl files use COBJMACROS
 * manually written files tend to use !__cplusplus || CINTERFACE
 * but there are also some manually written headers that use COBJMACROS
though there's only one such file in Wine currently control.h, a DirectX
   (mediaobj.h is another but only because we are missing the
corresponding idl file)

Since the headers defining our internal interfaces are written by hand
it would be more consistent (if anything) if they did not use
