I'd like to know whether communication between a metro application and a custom software driver running on the system is supported?

Sure I can and I think MSDN defines it even better:
<< A driver that is not associated with a device is called a software driver. For a discussion about software drivers, see the What is a driver? topic. Software drivers are useful because they can run in kernel mode, which gives them access to protected operating system data. For information about processor modes, see User mode and kernel mode. >>
