It even looks very much like .Net Remoting to me !

Except for the "API-less" approach, Layr is very different than .Net Remoting. Layr removes the API layer but it keeps the client/server (with a stateless server) architecture of web applications.

Indeed 😄, I got that, one cannot really compare it with an almost pre-web techno, but the feeling of it remains (it looks like it ... attributes, proxies & stuff).

I guess that's something that object-oriented RPC libs have in common.

Not at all. Layr is quite the opposite. The frontend (UI) and the backend (data model and business logic) are physically separated.
