Ah, you must know more than me as I had no particular expectations.
There are some counter-examples:
 * Bits.h contains the COM_NO_WINDOWS section, but there is no object 
keyword in Bits.Idl.
 * Dimm.h contains no COM_NO_WINDOWS section, but there are object 
keywords in Dimm.Idl (but in a library section, maybe that makes a 

Counter example to the "object keywords inside a 'library' don't count" 
hypothesis: SspsIdl.Idl.

Maybe this has to do with what a given Idl file #imports? (which would 
make testing harder :-( )

Or maybe the headers that lack the COM_NO_WINDOWS section have been 
manually edited by MS after being generated by midl?
