Is it possible to enable MsSqlSpatial to be used as a full spatial datasource with ESRI Arcmap/ArcCatalogue?
Would require some additional plug-in for Arcmap to allow this to happen?

Yes, it would require a special connector not available at this moment.

There is a GPL PostGIS connector for ArcGIS written in C#. At first sight, it seems easy to adapt it to work with MsSqlSpatial. In fact, the developers are planning to evolve to a more generic "OGC database connector" which I think could include MsSqlSpatial. If anyone want to implement this, I'd be keen on collaborating with that effort.
