I haven't deeply looked at it yet(only the application list), but I am not 
sure what the answer is.

For one part it is dangerous that people start using it to install native dcom 
and ignoring dcom bugs. Though considering the complexity of dcom, I don't 
think that anyone who does not know why he/she should not use native dcom 
would suddenly start fixing builtin dcom bugs. But it would reduce the number 
of regression testers and regression reporters because it would be much 
easier to switch to native dcom than to bisect and report a dcom regression.

I think the other things like the vbo runtime, odbc drivers, ..., are out of 
scope for wine anyway, so no danger in that.

Appart of dcom I'd say yes. With dcom I can't really answer this :-/
