PowerShell can not pass anything structured unless the other end of the pipe is a cmdlet and even then there are times when the other end of the pipe is forced to interpret whatever is passed to it as a string instead of a more structured object like a dictionary.

So even within a controlled environment like PowerShell where everything is a cmdlet it is still impossible to pass only structured objects between commands.
