An interesting point - following

An interesting point - following on from the Managed C++ discussion - is whether a Managed C++ program using unmanaged features such as MI and templates would run on a different machine architecture. Is the generated IL + Metadata completely x86 independent? If so, this would be a reason for compiling a conventional C++ program as managed (assuming all the relevant .NET pieces were ever ported to a different architecture).
