I'm reading the Manifest-Based Programs bit now. And you are correct, it depends on MSIL to analyze program behavior.

In any case I think it would be and interesting project to build a system around the idea that system components are deployed as source. If application configuration is a compile time decision a much higher degree of optimization should be achievable.

Edit: OTOH it seems doable at runtime http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~bodik/research/oopsla05-specialization....
