The CLI isn't a very big step beyond where the JVM already is...  It's 
been proven several times over that the JVM is at least nearly as 
capable of providing a runtime for alternative languages (Jython, 
Groovy, etc.).

The CLI and JVM both have sandboxing features, but they're not really 
the same sort of thing that is provided by the kernel.
