A "local interface" is not free from CORBA, you still have to declare it in IDL and you still have to inherit some other stuff and abide by certain guidelines. Aside from all that, if you look at Santos' IDL

He's certainly declaring Command as an argument to the run_command method (it isn't clear if it is an in/out/inout parameter). A local interface is local to the process/ORB it is in, and can not be marshaled/demarshalled. So, I do not see how a local interface would help at all.
