Wine is mostly a Win32 API implementation, so you only need it for things that use the Win32 API. Pure CIL assemblies that don't use Win32 APIs can be executed through native Linux mono.

I'd be really interested to see what that level looks like - would it be OK to share it?

It depends whether "still one egg remaining" means there might be more than one. Either way, though, it's true that there's no single solution.
