I hadn't really thought about the differences between platforms, but 
since virtually all data binding products use Java or C/C++ (there are a 
few for Python and COM) I'm not sure how much of a problem this is.

A lot of data binding products are open source and I think the problem 
is not so much NIH as, "Oh, somebody else invented that, too?" But for 
the commercial or major open source projects, the motivation seems to be 
just that people thought they had a better solution. Other than JAXB, I 
haven't seen anybody really trying to push standardization.
