That's correct, new types can't be generated at runtime and hence it is not possible to inherit from an arbitrary CLR type.

I'm interested (as you know) and I'm already neck-deep in IronPython's codegen, so I'll probably be tackling this next. I think they may be related anyway.

FRom looking at the API reference, there's no way to generate Types at runtime in Metro apps, right? Does IronRuby have a way to  inherit from a .NET type in that case? IIRC that was one thing WP7 could not support.
