It's a pretty big stretch to call 4/3 a "standard".

I believe that the Four-Thirds standard meets most of the accepted
definitions of a standard - certainly as much as the VHS tape
standard did when it was first established. It has been generated
by consensus of a group of organizations, is well documented, and
revolves around concepts of compatibility and interchangeability.

I think the "interchangability" is where 4/3's comes up short. To me, a "standard" means interchangability among brands, but 4/3's so far belongs almost exclusively to Olympus. Nobody else makes 4/3's bodies, and that doesn't seem likely to change.
