Yes effectively, Avid designed OMF & then had to work quite hard to make PT OMF aware, when they bought digidesign. This was/is quite tricky because for Eg Avid use a Clip based concept as makes sense in a post pro environment & digi for some crazy reason do stuff like level, pan, eq & automation with Ref to the timeline - just like old style linear 2" tape based automation systems.

A very good & interesting question, my guess is that SSL worked it out for themselves, I can't see Avid wanting such a thing to happen.
