It is hard to look at OpenI18N.org's spec and not get the impression
that all of that group's projects are not bound to some flavour of Unix.
The "Scope" clause for several sections are specifically expressed in
terms of Unix-related implementations (e.g. having the scope for
rendering requirements expressed as what is needed for X Window).
And even if a section isn't scoped specifically in terms of a
Unix-derived platform, it may specify requirements that are explicitly
related to Unix implementations (e.g. that base libraries must support
POSIX i18n environment variables).
CLDR doesn't have to be tied to any particular platform -- after all,
it's just a collection of data. But I don't think you can honestly say
that OpenI18N isn't tied to a particular family of platforms. Or, at
least, I can say that when I last looked at the OpenI18N site, it sure
looked like it was tied to a particular family of platforms.
