Again, the real question is what semantics you want.  The first question 
is: do you want to return a live list or a snapshot?  The second 
question is: do you want to return the same object every time (with 
presumably some explicit update points for the snapshot case) or a new 
object each time?

Once you decide on the answers to those questions, then we can talk 
about how to express it in IDL.  Fwiw, all four combinations there are 
in fact expressible in IDL.
