Have a look at ANDF (Architecture Neutral Distribution Format),
originally developed by DERA in the UK. The problem with more
sophisticated codings is that they demand more resources at
program installation time. For many applications, the receiving
nodes are cost-sensitive and simply don't have the resources to
handle sophisticated back-end compilation.
