The IHYCrossPlatformActions interface represents actions that can be used in a cross platform environment. This interface is used by the unmanaged hosts to retrieve and execute actions in the managed plugins.

There is no need to implement this interface manually, since it is already implemented by both visual and non-visual plugins.
