What makes it possible is that both Windows and OS X run on the same kind of CPU (x86). So something like that would be feasible only between the Amiga and another 68k computer/platform.
Which is exactly what some Atari/TOS "emulators" for Amiga do - and part of the reason why Shapeshifter is so fast (I think it also does some additional emulation on top of trapping instructions?)
